October 2019 College Prayer Points
Putting Feet to Our Prayers
Dear College Praying Moms,
As we continue to support the historic movement of God, called Every Campus (EC), our hearts align with this call to see revival and awakening and gospel-centered ministries established on each of the 4,948 U.S. college campuses. Imagine how this will affect the climate of campuses and then of the culture as students move into the workforce.
I am putting out a special appeal for October: In 2019 the goal is to prayer walk every campus. However, we are in the final quarter of the year and not on pace to accomplish that. As Moms in Prayer moms, we figuratively “walk” the campus weekly as we pray in our groups. But will you join me to put feet to our prayers, literally? As of September 23, there were 1,120 campuses with no prayer walk commitments and 1,524 committed, but not completed.
Will you invite friends, your churches and/or your students to join the effort? Search the EC website using your location and see what campuses near you need adopting.
Be sure to register your walk on the EC website so they can track when the goal is reached. This effort also aligns with our Moms in Prayer vision of “every campus covered in prayer.”
Use your “prayer walking” invitation to piggyback an invite to join your weekly Moms in Prayer group.
Are you traveling? Look up colleges along your journey or near your destination. Whether walking near home or away, please abide by our MIP Every Campus Prayer Walk Guidelines .
