SOI 21 ON CAMPUS
The Prayer Table
What’s the Prayer Table? Literally just that, a table with a box for collecting prayer requests and a sign that reads, “Want Prayer?” Students can come forward, share their requests, and leave a slip of paper with their prayer requests in the box. Think prayer is just reaching the Christian students? Think again! The Prayer Table has become Prayer Evangelism—connecting the power of God and the love of God at the point of perceived need in the lives of unbelievers. Not only have religious skeptics, nominal Catholics and Protestants, Muslims, and Jews asked us to pray for them, but our weekly, visible presence on the campuses has also created opportunities to build relationships with these students.
Daylight Prayer? What’s that? Three days of prayer for Revival and Spiritual Awakening! Once every semester SOI 21 rallies other campus ministries to co-sponsor thirty-six hours of prayer. Typically, students come in shifts to a tent located on the campus quad to pray during the daylight hours. SOI 21 facilitates and organizes this unique event to unite Christians in a spirit of prayer for their school. Plus, it’s a powerful testimony to college students to see Christians praying together for three days straight!
Currently SOI 21 is on the George Mason University campus in Fairfax, VA.

What’s it all about?
SOI 21 is devoted to calling forth sons and daughters of Issachar for this 21st century. A generation of young men and women who “understand the times and know what to do.” (I Chronicles 12:32) Who grasp the stakes in this hour for the Church, for America, and for Western Civilization. Who are impassioned to give all they’ve got to battle for Revival and Spiritual Awakening, Reformation and Transformation.
A generation of fierce lovers and tender warriors hungry to embrace covenant with God and one another in order to impact our nation and the world as they’ve never been impacted before.
A generation devoted to 24/7 prayer communities (the Tent of Meeting) that are catalyzed by dynamic relationships with the Lord and each other.
A generation sold out to obedience to the two Great Commandments: to love the Lord with all our hearts and to love one another as ourselves.
A generation longing for a Reformation greater than that of the 16th century and a 1st-century outpouring of the Holy Spirit in a 21st-century world.
