Maundy Thursday Day Of Prayer
March 29, 2018
"Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain."Psalm 127:1 (NIV)

Thank you for participating in our Maundy Thursday Day of Prayer for the global Christian school movement. We are overwhelmed by the number of you who joined us to pray for our students, our schools, and our nations. Over 45 countries around the world were represented, hundreds of prayer requests were shared on the global prayer map, and thousands of you joined our live recording of prayer and worship with Aaron Keyes. We hope you will join us in continuing to "pray without ceasing" that God would be with Christian schools, teachers, leaders, students, parents, and others who play such an essential part in the ministry of Christian education.

Here's what your peers are saying...
"I wanted to share with you a wonderful story from our time of prayer last Thursday. We assembled our entire school at our outdoor cross on campus (PK-12, approximately 330 students) to pray for them. We held an invitation for any students who wanted to accept Jesus as their Savior, and at least a dozen students chose to do so. It was a fantastic way to begin our Easter vacation! Thank you for promoting and organizing this event. It was a special time for us at Modesto Christian!" —Jonathan Burton, Superintendent/HS Principal, Modesto Christian School

"This was not just a day of prayer - I believe it was a spiritual shift in the Christian education movement. When we unite together around the world, asking God to act on our behalf to fulfill His mission, we let the enemy know we are laying claim to the ground and students God has given us. The work that we do cannot be completed alone and requires the unity of our hearts and minds to stay encourage, effective, and yielded to what God wants to do in Christian education. We are excited to hear of what God revealed during this time and the miracles that will follow." —Michelle Worley, Executive Director of Operations & Faculty Instructor, School of Education, Liberty University
