A Call To Pray For Your College Campus

Category: News & Updates ; 25 comments

Are there things about your school that you'd like to see God change?

Are there people on your campus who desperately need to know the powerful message of the gospel or the reach of God's love?

Do you sometimes feel like the only one at your school who is willing to live like God's called you?

If you answered "yes," let me follow up with one more question. (Zero guilt intended. Promise.)

When was the last time you prayed for your school?

With that question in mind, I'd like to invite you to check out this video, promoting the 2013 Collegiate Day of Prayer.

Will you join those who have already agreed to set aside the day to pray for campuses across the country? Will you pray for the college campus close to you on February 28, or make plans to pray for your own high school?

If so, leave us a comment to tell you what school you'll be praying for just ten days from today.

    Hi sisters in Christ! The video posted was impacting!! I am a Christian lady on a college campus and my heart aches for the emptiness seen from my classmates. Many times I have been heart broken by college professors and students denouncing and disrespecting God right in front of me. So, I will be praying on Feb. 28th for Chaffey College and the University of La Verne. Pray I may stay strong and bold in expressing my devotion and passion for my Lord Jesus Christ!

    I will be praying for my school: Bethel University in St. Paul, MN! I think it's easy to forget about praying for Christian schools in addition to secular schools. There are many people on campus who don't genuinely have a relationship with God, and I know God calls me to pray for them just as much as people completely blind to the faith.

    I'll be praying too!

    I'll be praying for the high school I'm transferring to this year, my present school and my dream university Yale. Everyone needs a chance to be saved and I hope my prayer along with others with win some souls for Christ!

    though we really have some struggles in our Christian organization at school. we kind of got split and those others want to have a new organization and most of our executive committee goes with them.. and it really is complicated right now. what we have right now is hard to explain. help me pray for our organization. Thank you and God bless

    I just wanted to share something that I think is really cool. I'm part of a Christian group on my campus (it's a secular university) and one of the guys in it started a prayer group last semester that meets once a week for a few hours just to pray; together, by yourself, whatever. You can read your Bible or share prayer requests or praises. Anyway, he wants to work to unite all the Christians on campus through this; it's not just specific to the group we're in. And this semester we meet on Thursdays! So, there will already be a group of us praying that day anyway! Obviously, I'm going to spread the word and hopefully use this as an opportunity to expand the group, but I thought that was just so cool! God bless you all and all your schools!

    I am praying for Concordia College, Moorhead. I am part of CRU, and revival on the campus is something we have all been praying for, but this video is a great reminder of just how important prayer really is, for both the lost, and those who just don't know how to listen for God's voice. Like the video said, He has called some of them, but they don't know how to recognize it in the mist of all the noise.

    Wow!
    This is an awesome video! I'll pray for Lorain County Community College! :) This is funny, it's a very secular campus.... You can just tell, sometimes you can just feel the dark oppression. There are moments where it seems like God is calling my name out over and over on the campus.

    Then instantly I would hear HIM calling my name and as soon as I leave it's like this huge deep dark oppression is gone!

    I'll pray! There is so few believers there. I used to go to a wonderful college that a wonderful small Christian Private school called Spring Arbor University.

    My campus Lorain County Community College needs God!

    I just transferred to a new community college: Lansing Community College, in Lansing, Michigan. I will pray for the many people I have met who need Christ and so many more that I have not crossed paths with yet.

    I'm from a school in England so college is actually different for university.
    I would like to pray for the college I'll be going to in a few months- Loreto College and my current school- St Matthews highschool.
    Here in England, Christian school is just a word because in St Matthews and Loreto, biology is a very hard lesson to sit through as a Christian. They call themselves Christians, but they don't acknowledge Daddy LORD created the world. I want to pray for a change in that, however; can a change like that happen in this current world???

    I will pray :)

    I attend Vanier college in Montreal, which is actually a two year college before I go to University. Monteral, has one of the lowest percentages of chirstians in the world, and it is noticable in our schools. So I will be praying for a revival not only In my School, but in Montreal! God is good and I know that He is eager to let his spirit move, so I know that my prayers will not be in vain. We need God and it's time for some change :)

    We do live in a mixed up world, don’t we, K! Whether we live in England or the US, we will find those who claim to follow Christ but do not believe nor follow His Word. Can change happen? Yes, it can, my friend. But it will happen one heart at a time. And it takes courageous women like you who are willing to pray and willing to take a stand for Christ in their schools, in their colleges and even in the biology classes. I’ve prayed for you, K, and asked God to give you the courage to be bold for Him and to never waver in your faith and in your witness for Him. Stand strong my friend! Jesus Christ is worth it all!
