Praying for Campuses (Part 7): Vigilant Prayer

Recently, I have been concentrating on prayer.  Most of my posts have been applicable to anyone and everyone.  Now I want  to transition the conversation in the direction of specifically praying for colleges and universities.  The next 8 days I will be discussing the ways you can pray for a campus.  Even if you are not a student our colleges and universities need you prayers.  Please take time to pray for the students, faculty, professional staff and administration of the institutions that are so important within our culture.

There are many ways to pray. The following list is just a few examples of how you could pray effectively for your campus.

1)  Single Prayer

2)  Scripture Prayer

3)  Group Prayer 

4)  Watchful Prayer

5)  Walking Prayer 

6)  Boundary Prayer 

These next two types of prayers should be followed by action if God so leads. They should be used especially before and during evangelistic action.

7)  Vigilant PrayerI have posted watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You, who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest and give Him no rest till He establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth. Isaiah 62: 6 + 7 Gather people together. Set apart specific times for each person to pray for the campus. Arrange it so that there is a person (or persons) praying  for the campus every hour of the day.  This can be done for as long as you want or as long as the number of people allow.  A day, a weekend or a week are suggested periods.
