Praying for Virginia Tech

I know our hearts and prayers are already going out to the students at Virginia Tech. I thought I would pass along some prayer requests from the Campus Crusade staff there.

1. The families of the students who were killed

2. The students who were injured and still in the hospital

3. 4 students that were involved with Campus Crusade were killed. Please pray for their families and friends.

4. Survivors of the shootings who witnessed the horrors of that day. Pray for God’s grace and comfort

5. Pray for wisdom for the CCC Staff and other campus ministers and pastors as they seek to counsel and love the hurting students

We at Campus Crusade will be taking some time Thursday to be praying. Won’t you join us?

“As you go to prayer tomorrow, I want to simply remind you of the promises of God.  He promises to move on our behalf when we seek Him in prayer.  How and why He condescends to us remains a mystery but “this is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.” (1 John 5:14)  God promises to glorify His name, the name above all names, as we walk in dependence and submission to Him. (2 Thes. 1:12) And finally, God will bring people to Himself as He is lifted up. He is drawing people even now as students are looking for comfort, as they join Christians who are praying on campuses, even as they search the internet for the answers that they seek. I am convinced that He will use this tragic event in the lives of people all over the world to bring many into the only relationship that offers real and lasting peace.” (from an email to Campus Crusade staff from Mark Gauthier, US National Campus Director.)
