Yes! Our first day of 24/1 prayer at GW was held last Thursday to Friday night. SOI 21 and four other Christian student groups at GW combined their efforts to create this awesome event. We kicked off the time with a “Jubilee” set of extended worship and prayer, which was followed by three-hour prayer “watches” that continued throughout the night and into Friday. We ended the time with another “Jubilee” set and broke our corporate fast with a “love feast.”
For individual prayer students could write a letter to God, express themselves artistically on a wall canvas, or pray for locations throughout the world at several personal prayer stations throughout the room. Or students could join a group praying corporately through such topics as Revival and Spiritual Awakening, the persecuted Church, the 10/40 Window, the lost on our campus, and the unity of believers.
So far the feedback has been extremely positive. I wish we could have captured the inspiring testimonies, personal ministry, and corporate fellowship that occurred during the time. But, you can check out a clever YouTube video that one of the groups created to encourage students to come.
