Prayer Requests:
1) Jesus said in Luke 10.2 “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore
     beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”

2) Students are under a lot of stress.
     a) They have little hope for the future
     b) Paying for college is very expensive
     c) Balancing school work, family dynamics, cultural expectations, the political
     climate, and racial tensions, just to name a few.
3) Pray for unity within the Christian community on campuses across the country.
4) Ask God to send a student awakening to our University campuses.
5) Pray that the Holy Spirit will bring conviction of “sin, righteousness and
     judgment” (Jn 16.8).
6) Pray for the school administrators, staff and faculty.
7) Pray for local churches to be involved in the lives of students, especially the
     community campuses and schools in small towns.
