May your roots go down deep into the soil of God’s marvellous love; and may you be able to feel and understand…… how long, how wide, how deep, and how high his love really is.
Ephesians 3:17-19 (TLB)
This scripture is very relevant to us here in IBI as we seek to open up the minds and hearts of our students in order that they will be in a position to put down good and deep roots and really grasp more and more how deeply they are loved by our heavenly Father.
Will you join us in prayer as we navigate our way through these autumn and winter months. The following points might guide you as you pray:-
- Please pray for our MA students who continue to study, research and write as they work their way through different stages of the programme. It can feel isolating when not involved in a class situation, please pray that they will know the Lord’s presence and his guidance as they work.
- We have a great cohort of evening students again this year who would value your prayer as they juggle their day to day lives with class and study. Pray that they would continue to engage well with their modules and with each other.
- Several of our BA students are still struggling with fees and with other commitments outside of IBI. Please pray that the Lord will continue to provide for their every need and that they will be able to cope with the discipline required to get through the course whilst balancing the other demands in their lives.
- This time of year can often be a stressful time for teachers as they get back into the rhythm of class and get to know new students etc. Would you please pray for both faculty and staff as we keep on top of all that needs to be done to maintain the standard of care we give to our students.
- We thank God for our students who graduated in September and would ask that you continue to pray for them as they face whatever the Lord has for them in the future.
Thank you for your continued support in this vital part of our ministry here in IBI.
