Insert your graduate’s name in this prayer
Heavenly Father, I come in Jesus’ Name to thank You for bringing (graduate’s name) through the last few years in a very difficult time with all the confusion and chaos of the Coronavirus. In spite of all the changes with online learning, etc., You have given to (graduate’s name) the ability to learn 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. Proverbs 24:6 “…and in a multitude of counselors there is safety.” I ask You to encourage (graduate’s name) to take all the knowledge acquired in school and use it wisely for Your honor and glory.
Direct him or her to realize that a relationship with Jesus Christ is basic to all future learning of the skills needed for being successful and for developing in the spiritual realm of life. It is a lifetime challenge, joy, and blessing.
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.
