“Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. At the same time, pray for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison—that I may make it clear, which is how I out to speak.” Colossians 4:2-4
I’m thankful for the window Scripture gives us to see into the hearts of God’s servants when we hear their requests for prayer. Whether its Jesus asking his disciples to accompany Him in His distress and time of prayer or its Paul requesting intercession for the mission to which God had called him, these records of their requests make me bolder.
Many in our network are praying today for university and college students on campuses across North America. Its the 200th anniversary of a commitment to pray for students and campuses.
Our friend Mark, shares the following requests:
We are praying for students to come to know God through a relationship with Jesus.
We are praying for students to engage their campuses with the Gospel.
We are praying for students to be called to serve the nations and take the Gospel around the world.
We are praying for a spiritual awakening on our campuses.
UBC and two other schools are on my heart today in Vancouver. I invite you to join us in praying for students and staff at:
The University of British Columbia
Emily Carr University of Art and Design
As well please pray for the leaders and ministry teams on campuses across Canada. Ask the Lord to open a door for the Gospel of Jesus, and to anoint them with His Spirit that they may communicate clearly and compassionately.
