ICF Prayer Focus
Academics and those who work in higher education
All knowing God, You call us to love You with heart, soul and all of our minds; our search for knowledge takes us deeper into a universe that You have made; so we thank you for those who stretch and extend human intellect, for in so doing they increase our capacity to know and worship You. May our institutions of learning be communities of harmony where knowledge is not perceived as a possession, but celebrated as a gift from You. And so may each use their knowledge; great or small; broad or intensely specialist for the greater good of all people and the purposes of Your Kingdom. Through Jesus Christ who is Lord of all the earth and everything within it. AMEN
