Day of Prayer 2016

2016-01-24 18.19.57The PIU Day of Prayer began Monday at Noon and concluded at Noon Tuesday as we celebrated prayer chapel together. 2016-01-24 18.20.02The Monday session took place outside in the pavilion at the center of campus on a beautiful day with a nice breeze blowing across the campus. It was a time of seeking to recognize the presence of God with us and listen to His voice. It was a blessing to experience that with so many of the students and staff. Most of the PIU family participated in a 24 hour fast (what people gave up was optional) as a reminder of our focus on prayer.

After singing some songs we had a corporate time of praise followed by several different small group prayers for the PIU family and the communities we live in. This is one of my favorite times as I get to pray with students that I have not really had a chance to get to know yet. It is also so encouraging to be able to hear students praying for me and to have an opportunity to pray for them individually.

Every semester the day of prayer is such a blessing. Perhaps we should do it more often?
