Prayer Requests

The stress and pressure students feel at the schools where Christian Union ministers can be overwhelming. Columbia alone has experienced seven suicides during this school year, according to the New York Post. Please pray for the students at each of the schools where we work. Pray for those battling depression, for the friends of those who have died, and for all who don't know Christ to come to a saving faith — and to find counseling help if needed — that can help re-shape their worldview and transform their lives.

We're grateful for a tremendous turnout at Tuesday's CU New York forum, "The Challenge and Opportunity of Gene Editing: Scientific and Ethical Considerations." Please continue to pray for the faith community's willingness and ability to engage well on issues in the public square.

Pray that God would use Day & Night to lead thousands of people to commit to pray daily for the spiritual transformation of the United States.
