Heavenly Father, thank you for the opportunity that we have tonight to welcome some of the new students. May many of the first year’s come and be encouraged to find other’s on campus who consider knowing Christ Jesus to be of surpassing value. Please help us to connect well with them. May our students be committed to keeping the gospel central as they study. Please help us to connect well with students who are just investigating Jesus for the first time. May they be struck by his awesome nature and saving work. Please, may your Spirit draw them to you.
