Lord, you have strategically placed this campus in the heart of town. We proclaim that SMU will be a “city on the hill” and that students will be the “light of the world” (Matthew 5:14), shining brightly and unashamedly for Jesus.
Prince of peace, in this campus culture that sometimes perpetuates performance-drivenness, where activity is prized over stillness, we ask that you would grant peace into the lives of many students who are worried and upset about many things. We pray especially for believers to learn to tune out distractions and tune into His voice. Help them to realize that few things are needed, indeed, only one. May you draw all men to find peace at the feet of Jesus.
In Jesus Name we pray.
