Prayer Requests

Christian Union's ministry on campus often includes the help of volunteers who lead Bible courses and mentor students. Praise the Lord for the volunteers He has raised up who have been able to connect well with students, and pray for their continuing impact.

Pray for students on Columbia's campus who received a book on Christian apologetics last week as part of a book giveaway. The giveaway has sparked numerous conversations — please pray as students follow up with their peers to discuss the book's content.

Each university where Christian Union ministers has had contact recently with students who are hungry for the Word of God. Continue to pray for Christian Union faculty as they minister in these settings. Pray for growing numbers of students to desire the truth of God's Word.

New York City Christian Union will be hosting a conference for Christian professionals April 1-3. Please pray for all those who are planning to attend, and for many more to register. Pray for God to move as attendees seek Him and continue to learn how to be Christian leaders in their respective professional contexts.

Two times daily, short video devotionals are being sent out to many to encourage and stir up a fervor in seeking the Lord. Christian Union Day and Night has aided many people globally to seek God's face and grow in relationship with Him. Continue to pray for passion to grow and for spiritual awakening.
