SOI 21 sponsored Daylight Prayer at George Mason University, April 30-May 2. The goal of the event was to unite Mason in prayer for Spiritual Awakening. It was also a great testimony to the campus to see Christians blessing Mason for 3 days in a row.
Students representing several campus ministries gathered under a tent on the campus quad to pray for their classmates and professors, as well as for the nation and the world. We set up the Prayer Table to pray for students who shared their requests with us. We were also able to use our evangelistic banners for outreach. I hope you'll be encouraged by the feedback of a few students who were involved in Daylight Prayer:
"The prayer tent is such a blessing to our campus. It is so great having a place for Christians from different ministries to unite together in prayer for other students and each other as well. It is so wonderful being able to bring whatever cares or concerns one might have and lifting them up before the Father and having others do the same."
It is incredibly powerful when the body of Christ comes together in prayer. In nearly every move of God throughout history, prayer has had a very important role. It is a joy and a privilege to be part of an event with other believers like this, with faith that God hears the cries of His people, and that His affections are toward us. I believe He desires to answer our prayers even more than we desire to ask. How pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity (Psalm 133)! Jesus promised that, if we ask anything in His name, in alignment with His heart, we will receive it! (John 14-17 verses paraphrased). What better way to begin than to make simple moves toward God in prayer? Thank you, Lord, and thank you, SOI 21, for providing an opportunity for us to do this through Daylight Prayer.
"Thanks so much for being faithful, Bill, and sowing in prayer into this university and this nation for His kingdom's sake. It is truly part of a beautiful picture that you are joining God in painting for your life and the lives of many that lasts for eternity."
