Prayer Requests

Please pray for wisdom and discernment as many schools are making decisions this month on what they will do for the fall term given the uncertainties of COVID-19. Please also continue to pray for spiritual renewal and strength for our students and our ministry faculty so that they can be beacons of hope in their homes and communities.

Please join us to pray for our city during these coming weeks. New York is beginning to come out of quarantine and continuing to wrestle with the issues of long-standing racial injustice. We need wisdom, courage, and the grace of God to be people who speak and work redemptively in these times.


Pray for Christian revival-- a mighty work of the Spirit of God-- in our nation. Please join our Prayer Team in praying for revival, if you haven’t already. You can join thousands of American Christians who are persistently praying for an awakening to Christ to sweep across our land. You can sign up here.
