Charles Troutman (a pioneer of IVCF in the 1930s) wrote, "There is no place like the university for the sharpening and expansion of Christian faith." Here is a prayer he wrote in 1960 which brings that grand vision down to each individual's desk.
When our lives become more hectic and intense with the pressure of papers and exams the need for prayer seems more obvious even if it is harder to come by. I commend this one to you. It has survived the test of time. You may wish to offer this prayer each time you sit to study. -Jeff Barneson
