1st Call to Prayer Requests And Praises

My son is a freshman this year at Baylor. I would appreciate your prayers since he is not liking Baylor. It has been a rough transition. We live in Illinois and we were unable to attend the Parent/Family weekend. He had a recent breakup with his girlfriend who attends a different university. I am praying he will be able to connect with someone on campus to help him emotionally. He also needs help academically since he had a rough start. 9/25/16

Lord, thank you for the good start of college for our 2 freshman kids. We also lift up our junior. May you guide their footsteps this semester. Help them to make good friends and make good decisions. Also, help them to balance their school work with their extra curricular activities and their part-time jobs. We also ask that you send down your Holy Spirit to enkindle in them the desire to grow in their faith throughout their college years. We also lift up the faculty and administration at Baylor and pray that you will infuse them with your patience and wisdom as they strive to form our students into the young men and women you would have them be. Thank you for the Christian witness that Baylor University continues to be, and may it always be a beacon for truth, justice, and peace that surpasses all understanding. In Jesus' mighty name we pray, Amen. 9/11/16

Please lift my first born baby up as she has completed an extremely tough, tiresome, and confusing first week as a freshmen at Baylor. She has struggled with getting organized and staying on top of the nearly 20 emails she's receiving daily, half of which are tasking her with more to do's. Please pray that these coming weeks prove to be more calm and organized. She is also experiencing a clash in roommate/suite mate issues. I ask Jesus to be her primary focus and to turn to Him in all things. I pray she finds her classes and work study to be easily manageable and that she remains a diligent worker. Please protect her Jesus, being her guard at all times. Please send her an encouraging friend that strengthens her time and love for Jesus. Please also pray for the football team as they are faced with another attack that leaves them bruised and the center of continueous negative light. Pray they remain strong and focused on bringing honor to their teammates, their coaches, their families and most of all to their Heavenly Father. 8/30/16

My brother-in-law has been fighting brain cancer and recently received a bad MRI and news that the cancer was spreading. This is a nasty cancer and the prognosis is not good. The doctors are only giving him 2 -4 more months to live. This is of course a very hard time for our family. I am struggling with anger over why God would allow this to impact our family, and I am so worried about how this will impact my beautiful freshman daughter who is just starting her life at Baylor. His daughter recently got engaged and we want him to be here for her wedding. We need God's healing hand. 8/24/16

Please pray for the families in the Baton Rouge area that have been affected by the recent flooding. 8/17/16

My daughter is going to be a new transfer student this next week. I would love a prayer for her to be embraced by people who are of like mind in Christ. I am in California and it is very hard for me to see her in Texas. Thank you and I will probably be sending you many requests:) Thank you for you your team and all your prayers! 8/15/16

Please pray for my daughter. She is in a relationship with an abusive boyfriend. And she has isolated herself from her parents. I am praying that Baylor can be a window for us. As you have experienced a scandal in your university, due to women being abused, I ask for your prayers for my daughter. And I pray for Baylor, may God heal the hurts and provide wisdom to always seek His LIGHT and TRUE LOVE. I pray for healing, so that God can be a greater presence on your campus. I know domestic violence and sexual abuse are not easy topics for discussion, but God's love and presence is greater and will give us the strength to overcome and to help us handle these horrible situations. And I pray that through bringing out the truth, we can offer this to God, so His Light can shine, heal, comfort and offer us eternal life. Pray for my daughter's safety and salvation. And pray that God can open windows so His LIGHT can SHINE. 6/2/16
