The 40 Days of Prayer- Aug 28th- Oct 6th, 2009
|Facilitated by Campus Ministries and Churches Across The City On Campuses Everywhere
For six weeks last fall students from ministries and churches all over New York City prayed around the clock asking God to awaken hearts to his presence, draw people to himself, embolden outreach on campus, and reveal his glory.
Many ministries were blessed. For example, Intervarsity wrote a 40 Day prayer guide and reported more than 33 students people made decisions of faith during the month of September alone. That’s more than 1 new believer per day. Other ministries also reported an increase in fruit. Kind of reminds you of the book of Acts doesn’t it? “And day after day the Lord added to their numbers those who were being saved.” Acts 2:48.
Last spring over a thousand students from NYC gathered for One Cry at Times Square Church to cry out to God on behalf of NYC! One Cry drew together church and parachurch ministries committed to seeking God’s transformation on campus. It was a powerful night.
What if it’s just the beginning? What if God’s desire is to transform the campuses in NYC in our generation? What if we are at the beginning of a move of God that is greater than we imagine?
Would you pray? I’m praying that as we bring these what if prayers before God we might hear from heaven. I’m praying that in prayer we go from asking, "What if God would do something powerful and transformative?", to asking "Why not?" I’m praying for mission on campus to succeed, for lives to be transformed by gospel and campus to be made new.
