Blink and eleven weeks have come on gone. Seventy-seven days—give or take—of non-stop classes, sports, extracurricular activities, “psets”, exams, papers and interpersonal highs and lows. It’s no wonder that many students almost jog to the T or Uber to the airport as soon as they possibly can post Harvard-Yale festivities.
Thanksgiving is here.
Would you please take a moment to pray for us?
Thankful for the life-changing gospel…
pray our students’ “love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that (they) may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.” [Phil. 1:9-11]
Thankful for the abiding presence of the Holy Spirit…
the manifest presence of God is often palpable and is changing us every time we meet.
Thankful for godly student leaders…
pray they would continue to serve HCFA and the greater Harvard community in humility, grace, and wisdom.
Thankful that many are growing in their heart for evangelism…
pray for the end-of-semester book giveaway (Keller’s Making Sense of God) and another round of Text 4 Toasties (Christian students creatively field faith-related questions).
Thankful for a relatively quiet semester…
Harvard College Faith and Action remains on probation (specifics still elude us) but progress is being made. Please pray for a peaceful resolution.
At this time of year, I should mention that we do depend on the generosity of many supporters to make this ministry possible. The resources provided by alumni, parents, and friends make it possible to run Bible courses for students this semester; to hold off-campus conferences, where students step away from campus life to grow closer to God and deepen their relationships with one another; to engage in creative Gospel outreach on campus and bring engaging speakers. And, of course, to meet with students one-on-one, to counsel and encourage them toward new faith in Christ or to deeper maturity in Him. Would you prayerfully consider making a special gift by December 31 to support current students as they hear the Gospel and grow in faith?
We are ever grateful for your partnership in the work on campus. May God bless you with rest and peace.
