Thank you for your partnership in the gospel ministry at HLS. Your prayers are a significant part of how God is accomplishing his purposes on this campus and beyond.

We are a few weeks into the fall semester. All of the 2L’s and 3L’s have returned, and the 1L’s are becoming convinced that they will not only survive but begin to thrive amidst the intensity and intellectual rigor that is HLS. Coram Deo Law has begun its men’s and women’s Bible Courses on Philippians, focusing on the example and power of Christ for living in a manner worthy of the gospel. Also, we are beginning our weekly lunch discussions that make sense of trending legal issues from a biblical worldview.
In the coming weeks of this semester, we want to honor our great God by asking great things of him. So please join us in praying that our students will become true partners in the gospel, helping one another to follow Christ in their personal lives, in their communities, and in their academic and professional labors. Here are some more specific ways you can pray.

  1. Thanksgiving and Provision. We begin our fifth year at HLS with much thanksgiving for our CU donors and other partners. Join us in thanking God for his abundant provision and the generosity of his people. And let us ask for more ministry partners who long to see the gospel advance in every way on the HLS campus.
  2. Knowledge and Love of Christ. These students will soon occupy unique places of power and influence in our secular society that will challenge their walk with Christ and yet provide many opportunities to honor the Lord in directing the policies and practices of our country. Join us in praying that they will rely on the power of Christ and follow his example to live in a manner worthy of the gospel, with a reasoned assurance of faith, a God-centered and unshakable joy, and an other-focused life of self-giving.

I leave you for now with this encouraging testimony from one of our students who graduated this past spring:

“Coram Deo Law fostered the deepest and most meaningful friendships I had at HLS. The Bible Courses are orthodox, intellectually rigorous, and a great way to refocus on what truly matters.
 — Caleb Wolanek (HLS J.D. 2017)
