Prayer Requests


UNIVERSITY MINISTRIES
Please continue to pray especially for freshmen whose college careers have just begun. Pray that God would open their hearts; that he would supernaturally lead them to connect with Christian Union students and ministry faculty; that more students than ever before would enroll in Christian Union Bible courses; that they would experience a spiritual hunger; and that the Holy Spirit would move powerfully, both in Christian Union's ministries and in the other great ministries on these campuses as well.

CITY MINISTRIES
CU New York is organizing community groups for those new to the city and those already here. Please pray for these groups to bring about spiritual growth in the Word and in community for all who participate.
