Lord God, heavenly Father, you see our MLC students growing to young adulthood in an uncertain and confusing world. Send your Holy Spirit into their hearts through your Word that they may grow in grace and wisdom. Give them strength to resist temptation and courage to meet the challenges of college life. Enable them to make friendships that reinforce their Christian faith and values. In the face of worldly temptations, show them the joy and value of following you into full time ministry. Make their unique gifts and youthful vitality a blessing to their families, to your Church and to all others their lives may touch, through Jesus Christ your Son, our Lord. Amen.
~ Pastor Boeder
