Prayer Requests

Please pray for students who have accepted leadership roles within Christian Union's various university ministries for the 2017-2018 school year. Pray that the Lord would give them wisdom and insight as they prepare, that these students would walk intimately with the Lord this spring and throughout the summer as they assume an increasingly intense (and important) role among their peers. And pray that God would richly bless their efforts by bearing much fruit through their service and labor.

We praise God for a successful Nexus: Professional conference earlier this month. Plenary speakers, seminars, prayer, and worship all combined for a remarkable weekend of spiritual and intellectual richness. Thank you for your prayers, and for all who attended to make this event instrumental in building networks of transformative Christian leaders.

On May 1, we start our month-long initiative, "Share The Gospel in May." We'll be sending out videos and other resources to inspire us to share the Gospel personally, boldly and strategically. Would you pray for us and/or join us? Sign up today at DayAndNight.org >
