I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.

The Worship Song I Can't Bring Myself to SingBy Trevin Wax
From The Gospel Coalition
There’s a popular worship song I’ve heard in recent years that I just can’t sing. The heart behind the lyrics is right, and the overall focus of the song is the goodness of the Lord, but at one point, it repeats a line over and over again—that God is never going to let us down.

Our Freshman Welcoming Campaign is in full swing, and God is providing great results. Hundreds of meetings are introducing freshmen to the reality that God's Spirit is alive and flourishing on their campuses. Pray that these new university students would enroll in Christian Union Bible courses and attend our wecome events. Pray that the many who show initial interest will carry through and stay engaged in Christian community. Pray also for our ministry teams to manage their hectic schedules well during this period and see much fruit from their labor.
I was remarking to a business friend this morning that we never really get away from an academic calendar — that even in the professional world Labor Day marks the start of a "new year." Please pray for those working in the myriad professional and vocational roles in New York and DC to establish, re-establish or strengthen devotional lives that allow them to work from that foundation in this new season. With enormous work loads and family responsibilities it is tough to consistently carve out enough time to make this reality, but critical that we do.
DAY & NIGHT
Please pray that God would grant favor to the efforts of the Day & Night team as they seek to promote spiritual strengthening in Christians across America. Pray that the Day & Night website and social media efforts would bear fruit. Pray especially that ever-increasing numbers of people would discover — and be blessed and challenged by — DayandNight.org.
