1st Call to Prayer Requests And Praises

My 2nd year daughter was diagnosed with cancer and is now receiving some pretty strong treatments. Not only is it effecting her physically but some of the treatments are effecting her mentally as she is having a hard time studying and retaining information. She needs some strong prayer to get her through finals so she can finish this semester as strong as possible as well as getting healed to continue on with a strong life. 11/19/15

My daughter is in need of prayer. She is a freshman at Baylor and currently battling stress and anxiety. The burden of school work, lack of sleep due to noisy neighbors, issues with a suite mate have taken a toll on her health. She has had acid reflux and heart palpitations that will not go away. Anxiety over the acid reflux has now taken a toll on her. Please pray for her peace, healing and strength to trust that her Lord will get her through this. That there is a light at the end of this tunnel and when she is out she will be stronger than ever. God Bless. 11/8/15

My freshman has an eye stigma called keratoconus and he needs special contacts. We have been trying to find a doctor who can help him while he is at Baylor but no progress. Please pray we find the perfect Doctor who can help him. I also ask that you pray that this condition goes away because it is painful. Also I will fly to Houston for ct scans at MD Anderson and my son worries about the results. Please pray for him, me and our family. God has been so good to us, but it does stress everyone out. Thank you. God bless you all. 11/6/15

I have a huge prayer praise regarding my son! He had a very rough first year at Baylor and had wanted to transfer to another school. After much prayer, many tears and heated discussion, my husband and I convinced him to give it one more year. I am happy to report that he has become engaged and was recently initiated into a fraternity and he could not be more excited about his future at Baylor! To God be the glory!! 11/2/15

For our son, currently a high school senior, who is considering Baylor as his choice for college next fall....that he would seek God's guidance in his decision. 10/22/15

Please pray for my daughters: a Senior in Nursing and a freshman in Mechanical Engineering. That God may continually guide and guard them in all their endeavors, and help them succeed and make their dreams a reality. That God may give them wisdom, understanding and retentive memories as they study, and be able to apply their knowledge as they take their tests and exams in Jesus Name, Amen. Also pray for good health and divine protection for them throughout their academic years and beyond. Thank God for a successful completion of her Nursing Degree, and scheduled graduation in December. To God be the glory, honor and praise forever. 10/21/15

I miss my son so much. I haven't seen him since June. I live in Oregon. I know he is doing fine, but I would really wound like to see him. He lives off campus and has a girlfriend and a dog that are his loves now. I am trying to get to Texas for Thanksgiving, if it God's will. I was denied the time off from work but may have a chance to work around it. I pray that it all works out. Thanks for any prayers. Talking on the phone is not enough. 10/19/15

Please continue to pray for our son. He's a freshman at Baylor. We are missionaries serving in Thailand. He is our oldest and the first to leave the nest. He is thriving at Baylor, thankfully. However, the distance is keenly felt, our being on the other side of the world. Thank you for your prayers. 10/19/15

Please join me in asking the Father to sever the unhealthy ties my daughter has with a young man she has been dating for several years now. He is not a Believer and this has had a great affect on areas of her life as well as her relationship with the Lord. Please pray that we would continue to love her well and know when and what to speak, as we wait patiently for the Lord to move in her heart. 10/13/15

Request prayer for my son, a freshman at Baylor. I pray for his strength, courage, confidence in himself and his abilities. He's very easy going, but typical smart high schooler adjusting to the demands of college. But now having issues with very assertive and stubborn roommate. I am asking God for wisdom and discernment about this, and how/what we as parents should do or handle this. First step is to pray and ask God, and that is my prayer today. Asking other praying parents to petition God for us as well. Thank you for the first call! I am out of town but hope to join the group to pray on one accord for our children. God bless! 10/08/15

Please pray that my son who is a freshman at Baylor will turn his heart back toward God and reaffirm his faith in Jesus as his personal savior. Please pray that God bring the right people around him to speak truth into his life and to answer his questions about his faith, so that when he has embraced it as his own, he will have a stronger faith than ever before. 10/06/15

Please pray for my freshman daughter. She is having real doubts about why she chose Baylor, so far from home. We feel that she is not just homesick, but is also a bit depressed. She went to the counseling center, and we will see if that helps her. She was a "top dog" leader and star in high school, and now just seems to be floundering to fit in. We aren't sure she will be returning for second semester, even though Baylor's values are so very similar to her own. God bless you and your Baylor children, too. 10/06/15

Pray for [my student] to feel connected on campus and have a successful academic first semester. Praise God for the church group she is a part of and for Him to keep them surrounded by leaders and friends that encourage and lift one another up. 10/05/15

Please pray for our daughter, she is a sophomore and is an CL this year. She is struggling with the CL responsibilities as there are several freshmen on her floor having a difficult time adjusting to college, requiring much of her time. Please pray for the Lord to guide her in helping these students and also that the new freshmen adjust to college life quickly and make good decisions as they navigate through this process. 10/02/15

Please pray for my daughter's application process to P.T. school. She is a senior this year, and has had an incredible time at Baylor! Pray that God will open the doors for her to be accepted into the P.T. school best suited for her, and that she will continue to trust God for direction. Also pray for her to have strength and peace as she juggles her studies, cheer, retaking the GRE, and additional P.T. shadowing hours. 9/24/15

Please pray for our daughter, a sophomore at Baylor. Pray that she holds true to her morals and values. Pray for her safety. Please pray that she continue to see the needs of others above herself. Thank You 9/24/15

My son's friend, a Baylor student, was in a terrible accident near Houston last weekend. He is on full life support with very little brain function. Please pray for a miracle for Sam, for his salvation, and for a devastated group of family and friends. Pray that this group will look to Christ for their hope and comfort. 9/14/15

I would like to ask that you uplift and pray for both my son and daughter who are both freshmen. Please lift them up that they choose the right friends. Friends that will draw them closer to Christ not lead them or distract them away. I'm most concerned with my son. I do not have the best feelings about his roommate and suitemates and those he has befriended so far. My daughter was always actively involved in church youth group and I know she loves the Lord. My son, on the other hand, was not involved and at the last just refused to even go to church. It was one of my answered prayers when he was accepted to Baylor, because I knew he would be required to go to chapel. I also knew the environment he would be surrounded and saturated in and maybe he then would develop a personal relationship with Christ. So please lift up my son and my daughter. Thank you. 9/14/15

Lord I pray for strength in [someone special]. Help him be strong against the wiles and evils of this world in his day and age. Lord I pray that he would feel strong enough to take on anything this life has to offer him with You by his side. Give him a noble heart, a steadfast spirit and a passionate pursuit for holiness. Let him embrace his calling as a Christian leader in the 21st century and let him know the depth of influence that he has on others. Jesus, give him a fierce love for righteousness and a healthy fear of You, God. Thank you for him Jesus. I surrender my thoughts and questions, doubts and fears in regards to him. Lord, take control of his love life, I entrust it to You. Please be the King of his heart, be all his hope and dreams. I love you Jesus. Thank you for all that you are doing in his life and in that of my Future Beloved’s! Amen. 9/11/15

Please pray that we are able to come together and form a First call to Prayer group in the Rio Grande Valley as we continue to lift up all of the concerns of all of our students. I ask that God use me to participate in this group if one is already in formation. My son is a sophomore this year and I ask prayers for him as he continues to try to find his calling at Baylor. Please pray that he would not forget to call on the Lord God almightly when in doubt,or fear or anxiety, and that he and all of our students will glorify HIS name in all that they do. Amen! 9/10/15

My son is attending Baylor this fall and seems to be having difficulty adjusting to college life and being away from home. We live in Colorado. Please pray for him. Please help us know what to say to him. Please pray for him to be self disciplined and to seek the help he needs with confidence. Please pray for him to see how blessed he is to be attending Baylor. Please pray that he has clear, rational thoughts. Please pray that he works hard. He is my first of four so please pray for anything else that I am not requesting that you can think of. He is smart and can go far if he adjusts and works hard and is disciplined. Thank you. 9/09/15

I pray for my son, that he may not feel guily about what his father has told him. That he knows that I will protect him. Please watch over him this week. 09/01/15

Our daughter is beginning her first year in the nursing school and we are so thankful for the opportunity God has given her through this amazing Baylor community. We lift up her and all the Baylor students, faculty and administration as we begin another school year. We pray that they may stay close to our Lord and seek him in all things and that He would guide them according to His Will. In Jesus name we pray, Amen! 8/31/15

Please pray for all the Freshman this year that they will make a good transition to college life. Pray that they will seek God in all their endeavors and be transformed while at Baylor. Please pray for my son, a Freshman, that he will set his heart on pleasing God through his studies and his service to others. Also pray for health, safety, and most of all God's grace and peace to all of Baylor Family. 8/31/15

Pray for our son as he begins his freshman year at Baylor. This will be his first time to live in America after growing up on the mission field. He is also the first to leave the nest. The rest of the family is in Thailand where we serve as missionaries. Thank you so much for holding our family in prayer during this time of transition. 8/28/15
