“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Philippians 4:6-7

Praying for Others.  The best gift anyone can give to another is to pray for him or her.  When we pray for another person it not only helps the person find God in the midst of their trouble but it also helps us to recognize the endless blessings that God wishes to give to us daily.

If you are a current member of the University of Scranton community – or if you are an alum – you’re invited to enter your  prayer requests for your needs or the needs of others. When entering your prayer do not worry how it is phrased.  Our communication to God should be just as you (we) would talk to a friend.  Just click on the image above, type your prayer.  When your request  is accepted it will be posted here.

Parents and friends are very concerned for him and have tried reaching out to help, but he seems lost. May we please pray for healing and that this young man will feel Gods love for him:

    Lord, I lift this young boy to You and ask that You would place in him the desire to eat healthy food to make his body strong and well. Help him to understand what’s good for him and what isn’t, and give him a desire for food and exercise that is healthful.

    I pray that he be spared from all eating disorders in any form. Along with the desire to eat properly, give him the motivation to exercise healthy, to drink plenty of pure water, and to control and manage stress in his life by living according to Your Word. Lord, Your Word says, “you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32).

    Help him to see the truth about the way he is to live, so that he can be set free from any unhealthful habits that are hurting him.
