Many of you generously expressed an interest in praying for Scholar’s Compass, which launches next Sunday (September 7). We’ll be posting prayer requests the first Saturday of each month on the ESN blog, and we’d love for you to read them and pray for the project.
We’d love to pray for you as well. Feel free to suggest general ideas for prayer that we can post (starting semesters well, finding rest, welcoming new students, campus access concerns — California State University system’s de-recognition of 23 InterVarsity student groups, etc.) or send us a private email with more individualized requests.
For now, a selection from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer, well-suited to beginnings:
A Prayer of Self-Dedication: Almighty and eternal God, so draw our hearts to thee, so guide our minds, so fill our imaginations, so control our wills, that we may be wholly thine, utterly dedicated unto thee; and then use us, we pray thee, as thou wilt, and always to thy glory and the welfare of thy people; through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
