Hey good people,
We’re hoping you can join us for an evening of prayer for New England colleges and universities on Tuesday, April 30, 2019!
J. Edwin Orr (1912-1987)—an absolute legend in the field of spiritual awakening—once put it like this: “When God intends to move, He sets his people praying…”
And truly, something very special is happening in the place of prayer for colleges and universities right now:
- For the first time EVER, on February 28, 2019, all 4,945 colleges and universities in the United States were adopted in prayer on the Collegiate Day of Prayer.
- InterVarsity and Cru—in collaboration with more than 40 other collegiate ministries—are partnering together to prayer walk EveryCampus in the US in 2019.
- A national leader of one of the largest campus ministries in the US recently said, “In 37 years of collegiate ministry, I’ve never seen the kind of unity I am seeing now.”
- Here in the Boston area, a group of 25 of us gathered to pray on the recent Collegiate Day of Prayer—16 different organizations, churches, and campus reps took part, and 46 campus prayer walks were committed to this semester!
In response to all of this, we think it’d be awesome to prayer walk any and every campus we can this month, and then gather and pray for our colleges and universities together on April 30, 2019—here are the details:
A gathering to pray for our New England colleges and universities. We’ll worship, we’ll pray, and we’ll take time to share stories from recent prayer walks!
The gathering will be hosted at Church of the Cross at 105 Jersey St., Boston, MA 02215—right in the heart of the Fenway.
Tuesday—30 April 2019—8:00pm-9:30pm.
WHO SHOULD COME?
YOU—and any other students and professors and campus fellowships and parents and pastors and churches and others who want to pray for colleges and universities in Boston and New England.
WHO IS HOSTING THE GATHERING?
A few campus ministers—Sherami Hinders with InterVarsity, Ryan Ruffing with CCO, Trent Sheppard with Alpha, and hopefully Liz Kealy with CRU if she can make it!
WHY SHOULD I TAKE TIME TO DO THIS?
Because we believe King Jesus is up to something brave and beautiful on campuses right now…
and we think it’d bring joy to God’s heart if we conspire in prayer together…
like that passage in John 17:20-23 says 🙂
Please let us know if you can make it—hope to see you on Tuesday, April 30, at 8pm!
Sherami, Ryan, and Trent
P.S. You definitely don’t have to have already participated in a prayer walk to join the gathering on April 30—but if you’d like to prayer walk a campus in advance, then feel free to find a campus (or five!) and a prayer guide at everycampus.com.
