It goes without saying that college students, particularly those who are believers, face increasing challenges on their campuses.
“Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
“Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”
Concerts of Prayer organized in the mid-1780s led to the Second Great Awakening which stretched across the United States from 1790-1845. By 1815, the Concert of Prayer for Colleges was held regularly on the campuses of Yale, Williams, Brown and Middlebury.
The Collegiate Day of Prayer is being reestablished because of the recognition that the spiritual needs of this nation and this nation's youth are great.
John Wesley said, “God does nothing but in answer to prayer; and even they who have been converted to God, without praying for it themselves (which is exceeding rare), were not without the prayers of others. Every new victory which a soul gains is the effect of a new prayer.”
