Day of Prayer

Schools that Pray

2019 Day of Prayer

Thank you for participating in ACSI’s 2nd annual 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 and hundreds of prayer requests were shared on the global prayer map. God is faithful to His Word: “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective” James 5:16. And not only will we rejoice in seeing the way God responds to our prayers, but even the act of praying itself is profoundly impacting: when we hit “pause” in our normal routines to wait on God, to seek His face, to intercede for one another, we are reminded of the true Source of strength, wisdom, and resources. Prayer changes us!

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.

You can stay connected with the movement by...

• Continuing to visit the prayer map to pray for your fellow Christians around the world.
• Encouraging others by sharing your school's prayer story on social media using the hashtag #SchoolsThatPray.
• Following us on Facebook to see how Christian schools all over the world have joined in with this prayer movement.
