Investing in a seminary student through prayer

Posted by Stephen Witmer on March 2nd, 2015

Dear PCF,

As you know, I’m teaching a course on the Gospel of John at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary this semester, from February – May 2015. I’m asking God to multiply the effectiveness of this course and display his worth to these students. I’m praying that the students will be excited and encouraged and equipped to make their study and teaching of Scripture central to their ministries.

Any ways in which God leads you to bless my students will be much appreciated. This past week, a PCF member gave me a big batch of delicious cookies to deliver to my class. Here’s another great idea: choose one student and pray for him or her for the duration of this class. Pray for spiritual focus and maturation, for good friendships in seminary, for financial provision, for peace during stressful and busy periods, for clear direction for future ministry, for a tender and repentant and gospel-loving heart. This is a great way to bless a student and the churches these students will eventually serve.

There are 33 students in my class, and they come from all over the world:

Benjamin Kelly Matthew Amaris Zachary Stephen Aaron Marcus Mathew Jack Jairus Anne Mark Trevor Ben Sung John Brett Tiffany Yumiko Jonathan Benjamin Benjamin Benjamin Michael Jeffrey Zachary David Christopher Rachel Rachel Brice Jae Hoon

Thanks for being part of this ministry to seminary students and the wider church!

With gratitude,

Pastor Stephen
