Collegiate Day of Prayer has a significant history in the spiritual awakenings that have been birthed in our nation on the college campuses.
That’s why Thursday, February 25, 2016 is a significant day for all of us in the collegiate ministry world to circle on our calendars. No matter your denomination, location, or ministry role – we all agree – it’s imperative that we pray fervently for God to move in the lives of college students and to use them to bring about a movement of God like our nation has never seen before.
Why is Collegiate Day of Prayer Important for College Ministries? Here are 3 reasons that I believe it’s important for us!
