Heavenly Father — thank you for blessing our WELS with the beautiful campus, the students, and the staff of Martin Luther College. We praise You for raising up the next generation of our sons and daughters who are willing to prepare for Gospel ministry to share the saving name of Jesus with untold generations. Help them in their studies, especially during exams. Bless their Christian relationships. And never let them (nor anyone who reads this prayer) believe their labor in the LORD is ever in vain. In the saving name of Jesus, we humbly ask these things. Amen.
