This week's focus: Education
Pray this week for colleges and universities across America as students gear up for the fall semester. Today in our nation, the next generation of leaders is being educated, many times by professors who hold disdain or disregard toward Christ. Pray that students will establish a solid foundation in their walk with God and not be persuaded to follow empty philosophies. Pray that students will be Christ-centered and seek to find the truth in Christ. Pray that the Lord will empower believing students to resist the godless culture that surrounds them and instead be an instrument of light and the love of Christ. Pray for unbelieving students across college campuses, that the Holy Spirit will move in their hearts and that they will find their identity and purpose in Christ. Pray for teachers and officials who instruct and lead college campuses across America to encounter Jesus. Pray for Christian ministries that focus on college and university outreach, that the Lord will make them effective in shaping this generation. Pray for an awakening on college campuses across America, that this next generation will hold a biblical worldview and, most importantly, love Jesus with all their hearts, souls, minds, and strength.
1 Corinthians 15:58; Philippians 4:8-9
"Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain."
"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you."
- In 2018, a concerned citizen showed up at his city council meeting and gave a passionate speech about 2nd amendment rights that went viral. Speaking up at that city council meeting catapulted Mark Robinson to something extraordinary because just two years later, the political novice was elected to serve as the 35th Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina. We had the opportunity to talk with the Lt. Gov. and glean his faith-based perspective on important issues such as abortion, the right to bear arms, Critical Race Theory, serving with political foes, and Christian engagement in politics. Watch here.
We want to see God honored in America, and we pray for an unprecedented spiritual awakening.
