Lord, as you have satisfied the hearts and the minds of your people in years gone by, direct us and guide us through the power of your Spirit in these difficult times. Help us to always keep our attention focused on your will and your way. Amen

Lord God, you have given us all we need to shine in the shadows. We ask for your Spirit to kindle a flame of joyful, creative unity among the seminary's administrators, faculty, support staff and the church around them - that they may celebrate the privilege of assisting You in raising up new servant for your church in every age - through Christ our Lord. Amen

In a time of uncertainty, we need and ask for vision. We need to know why we are doing what we are doing, or at least have some inkling of that. We have struggled for over a half-century for vision to see why we are losing members, almost regardless of what we do. Give us that vision of courage and stamina that will enable us to begin to see your purpose in this crazy world in which we live, and seeing, know what we must do in response. Amen.

Heavenly Father, may we not fear the crashing waves that hurl themselves against our fragile community. But, instead, may we defiantly stand with our faces to the wind trusting with all we have that your voice is more powerful than any foe. Do not slumber long, O Lord, calm our hearts and speak your Peace.

Gracious God, by your Holy Spirit you have raised up both students and teachers of the church. We are filled today with gratitude for both. Many of us were nurtured deeply in the gospel at Seminary and have taken our call both joyfully and seriously. We offer our petitions for those who must face a new leg of their journey. Grant strength, courage, patience and hope to the whole Seminary community today. In Christ, our brother and Lord, Amen.

God, as you have planted a place to nurture and grow leaders for your church on earth, protect what you have planted. As so many struggle with money, help us to be wise and discerning with the resources we have, knowing that we have abundance to share. In Jesus' name we pray.

Father God in the name of your precious Son Jesus, I ask that you keep a hedge of protection around the students and the faculty at Luther Seminary. Guard their minds and hearts to know that you will never leave nor forsake them and you are a very present help in the time of trouble. Thank you for their answered prayers. I speak prosperity and hope for great success and glorious days of happiness. Thank you Jesus for shedding your blood on Calvary. In your name I pray. Amen.
