By Laurel Copp
From ChristianUnion.org

Prayer Requests

Our ministry teams are very involved in prayerfully setting new goals for the next academic year. These goals include reaching incoming freshmen, increasing the number of students in our Bible courses, and reaching the campus at large with the Gospel. Pray for us that we would hear from the Lord as we set bold goals for next year. And pray that we will have great courage to carry out God's intent to show His love and power on each campus.

We appreciate the many prayers for our annual CU Cities Conference that took place June 21-22. The speakers, sessions, and times of worship and prayer all focused on our call to be courageous in our faithfulness and engagement with society -- in ways both thoughtful and compelling. Thank you for your prayers and involvement in making this conference fruitful and consequential, and we rejoice in how God answered.


Please pray for the upcoming 21-Day Fast, held August 12 - September 1, 2019. Pray that thousands of American Christians will join us in seeking God through prayer and fasting. May God hear our cry for widespread revival! Find out more and sign up today at dayandnight.org.
