During those many days the king of Egypt died, and the people of Israel groaned because of their slavery and cried out for help. Their cry for rescue from slavery came up to God. And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. God saw the people of Israel—and God knew.
— Exodus 2:23-25

Prayer Requests

We praise God for His blessings during the Freshman Welcoming Campaign. We have exceeded our freshmen enrollment goal! Many of our ministry teams are several weeks into the Bible Course study of Colossians and students are growing in the Word. Pray for our students to grasp the depth of God's love for them and put their increasing faith into action.

Please pray for two upcoming events this month: a Finance and Faith Forum on Oct 24, and an evangelism salon on October 31. These gatherings will be instrumental in developing a more robust Christian influence in our city and workplaces.


Pray for multitudes of American Christians to answer the call to wrestle against the power of darkness. Pray for a spirit of courage to fill followers of Jesus to fight against the spiritual enemies of God and promote the ways of the Messiah. Pray that the coming Great Experiment will propel many to bold faith in action.
