#PrayerWeek - January 21-24, 2014
As a new semester begins, we’d like to call UMN Navs to pray. Of course, we already should regularly be in prayer. However, it does seem fitting for there to be a special call to focused prayer from time-to-time. The beginning of a new semester strikes us as one of those fitting times.
All that we long to see happen on campus and in our lives is rooted in the transforming power of God. What might happen if we earnestly prayed for God to glorify himself at the University of Minnesota? To build up believers in Christ? To mobilize believers to reach the lost and make disciples? To reach the nations through us? It is exciting to think about what God may be pleased to do!
So, let’s pray! Here are the themes we’re pressing into, with suggested passages to pray from:
Tuesday: For God’s glory and kingdom to be manifest at the U of M
Wednesday: For God to build up believers, in Navs and other ministries and churches at the U of M
Thursday: For God to mobilize believers to reach the lost and make disciples
Friday: For God to reach the nations with the Gospel (among us, overseas)
Where/when to pray:
Of course you can pray wherever you are, by yourself or with friends. Here are a few times that you can gather with students in Navs to pray this week:
