Heavenly Father, please help our group as we start out this semester to keep putting our confidence in your word. May we be taking every opportunity to listen to it and have it shape us. Keep us looking for ways to point our friends to the beauty of the gospel that we hear in it. May the students be able to meet together in twos and threes to keep encouraging each other by your word. Please help me to teach it faithfully in our Bible studies and find ways to let it ring out from among us, so that many may hear and find life in you.
