Insert your graduate’s name in this prayer
It is through Jesus’ Name that I come to You, Heavenly Father, to thank You for all the years that You have given to (graduate’s name) and for the privilege he/s had of going to school and learning all that is required to be a graduate.
Thank you for the parents, loved ones, teachers and friends who have had a part in this accomplishment. “…and in a multitude of counselors there is safety” Proverbs 24:6.
I ask that in this season of life (graduate’s name) would grow deeper in love with You. Show him/ her how to take all the knowledge acquired in school and use it wisely for Your honor and glory.
I know that there are many challenges and tests ahead for (graduate’s name). I ask not that you spare him/her from all these events, but that You would show him/her how to cling to You through the ups and downs of life. Teach him/her to look to Your Word for answers, and not to the demeaning answers this world provides. “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” Ephesians 6:12.
Show (graduate’s name) that as he/she starts through the many phases of life that “…with God all things are possible” Matthew 19:26b. Thank you that by following God’s ways and receiving His power any and all obstacles can be overcome.
I bring this payer in Jesus’ wonderful and powerful Name, Amen.
