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 .

Be looking for the blog, Prayer Walking Moms Impact College Campuses, written by one of our own college praying moms. This will be posted on October 3rd on the Moms in Prayer website and featured on the College Praying Moms Facebook page .

Prayer Points:

Sept. 29-Oct. 5: Political Science Departments. Student Government leaders. Social media, email, and grassroots efforts to encourage people to prayer walk the remaining campuses on the Every Campus website before the end of the year.

  1. Thank you, Julie, for your time serving all the college mamas who pray for their kids and journey forward with them into the “adulting” season. Bless your heart and and encouragement. I love reading your monthly posts and how they resonate with me, even though it’s been 5 years since my baby was preparing to do what yours is doing…. finish school, and right away start a new career and marriage. It’s a lot. <3 As a group leader of both college and career moms, I so appreciate you keeping me/us there in the real parts of mothering these young adults. Time "home" with them at holiday breaks is precious. Conversations to keep connected (and praying about when to speak and when to bite our tongues) is so important. And continuing to lift these kids up before the Lord as they do life in the "school of hard knocks" or finish college/trade school work and strive for the future and "figure out" what their next step will be, is HUGE. We can get our "knickers wrapped up in a knot" and feel so anxious with some of their choices. Keeping vigilant in prayer for their hearts and choices/temptations, job searches and date/mate choices, etc. is one thing that we CAN do, regardless of what THEY do. They will choose paths just as we did at the same age; some narrow and some wide. We thank God for His faithfulness to love and go after our kids as the Great Shepherd, no matter where they may wander or where the enemy works to lead them astray. And I thank God also, for the blessings of sister-mamas to meet and weekly join hearts and prayers for these lil' adulting lambs of ours. May God grant you a wonderful 2019 full of much joy and great love.

  3. I’m happy to founded, because my son is senior this year and I star to pray for the future college right now. I’m a youth pastor in Hispanic Church in Columbus Ohio (Cristo Rey Ministries). I try to involve our moms to pray too.
    Blessings!!!

      1. Julie, I enjoyed your letter! (on my list) made me smile.
        Even though I have a member’s guide, I have another mom I am mentoring and thought I could pass on that quick route to purchasing the leader’s guide. However, when I clicked on the high lighted word it did not take me to the leader’s guide and after more digging I was still unable to find it.

    2. Peggy, in addition to what Sue told you about, we also hope to add a resource page to our college pages in Oct. So check back then as well. If you like our College Praying Moms Facebook page, I hope to provide resources their too in between the monthly newsletter and the items on the college pages on the website.

    1. I do not have an official group for my college – Clemson – but I started praying and walking the campus in prayer last year. My hubby even went with me a few times. I do pray there is a way to connect more of us by Skype or group phone calls to pray for our colleges. Please pray God would bring me a few other moms to pray for my college.
