Stand in the gap for NGU students, faculty, and administration by joining NGU parents in monthly prayer. Our desire is to encourage, support, and gain strength from other parents as we spend time talking with God about the needs of the students, faculty, and administration; unite with other parents to pray; and gain peace of mind in knowing our students are blessed with prayer.
We will make a monthly prayer focus and list topics and suggestions for related prayers that are particularly relevant for college students. 

September 2018

This month, the prayer focus is "Calling." It is crucial that each student discover and develop the call of God on their lives. God has designed each person with a skill set that helps accomplish his purpose in the world. Discovering our calling allows one to connect their lives to the mission of God. 

  • Pray that each student would hear the call of God to salvation. We have several events planned throughout this month that will provide them the opportunity to hear and respond to the gospel.
  • Pray that each student would better understand The way God has design and how that affects his calling for them.
  • Pray that every student would leverage their calling to reach the world with the gospel.
Pray for students to identify opportunities to serve God through their calling. We have many ministry team opportunities for students to serve with that will begin this month.


October 2018

NGU places a strong emphasis on the spiritual formation of students. All areas of the university share the responsibility of helping shape the Christian faith of each student. Please join us this month in praying for ongoing spiritual formation among our students.
  • Pray for the chapel services held every Monday and Wednesday at 10:00am. The chapel services are structured around particular topics that assist in the process of spiritual formation. Ask that God would empower each chapel speaker to effectively communicate God’s truth.
  • Pray that faculty members would continue to utilize their specific disciplines to help shape the faith of students. Pray for Gospel-centered conversations between professors and students that will form their minds and hearts.
  • Pray for the staff members of the Student Life area. Ask that God would continue to use them to help form the spiritual lives of students through all their areas of responsibility. A few of their responsibilities include student activities, student housing, student conduct and career development.
  • Pray for NGU Athletics as they lead our student athletes. Thank God for administrators, staff, and coaches that prioritize spiritual growth among their players.


November 2018

The monthly prayer focus for November is “choices.”
  • Pray for the day-to-day choices and the moment-to-moment decisions our students will make. The importance of these cannot be overestimated.
  • Pray to loosen the burden of running their own lives, our own lives, and that God may do the work He desires through each of us.

December 2018

Parents, you are going to have a tired student returning home this month. Exams will be completed, and grades will be posted. Pray for REST! 
  • Pray for physical and mental rest! I can promise you that your child is exhausted. Pray that they can settle into home again and enjoy the weeks with family and a change in routine.
  • Pray that their time of recreation during the holiday will be re-creative so that they feel ready for the return in January for the spring semester.
  • As your student has finished this semester, they may be more assured or less assured that they are in the right major. Pray for good conversations and the wisdom to help guide them as this semester is moving them closer to the goal of future plans. 

January 2019

We hope that your Christmas holiday was wonderful! We are praying that your student felt excited to come back home to us at NGU! As they are beginning this new year and new semester, let's join together in praying for a fresh anticipation for the things that this year will hold.

  • Pray for that first day of class as your student is given a new syllabus. Instead of dread, pray that they feel energized over the assignments and projects that will be included their classes.

  • Pray that they will have favor with their professors. Our faculty love our students and long to see them succeed.

  • Pray for new friends as your student begins new classes.

  • Pray for them to get settled back into dorm life. 


We would love to hear from you! We want to give you  the opportunity to share your valuable feedback with NGU to let us know how we can improve for future families. This information (which you have the option to submit anonymously) will be shared with various groups on campus, as we strive to improve our service to you and be a place where Christ makes the difference.
