The month of May represents the hope of warmer weather, the smell of budding flowers, and a season of newness for many people. If you’re a 3L HLS student, you’re thinking it’s the end of a 3 year-long chapter, and the beginning of the rest of your life. So much has gone into the last three years of law school — so much sacrifice, all the labor and investment into preparing for the life that is now staring back at you squarely. In just a few days, over 500 students will graduate with their degrees from Harvard Law School. Hundreds of young men and women will strive to make their mark and leave a legacy on and in the world in which they will strive to lead. There among them are those who hold a unique understanding of their law degrees as secondary to something of greater value — their call to honor God with their lives.

Much of the ministry here at HLS has been the call to remember WHO gives us value, not WHAT. This theme of remembering throughout the Scriptures is dominant, both in the old and new covenants.

So, our prayer request this month is twofold and simple:

  1. Pray for God’s favor upon those HLS students who love Jesus, and who equally desire to make a mark for the sake of Christ and the Kingdom of God.
  2. Pray that those with God’s favor would be bold in offering the life-transforming news of the Gospel with those who do not yet know nor love Jesus.

Thank you for being part of what God is doing here on the HLS campus!
