The ACSI Day of Prayer is an annual event that advances Christ-centered education by advocating through prayer. These past few school years have presented many unique challenges, but God has given our school communities the strength to overcome adversities and pursue new opportunities. We encourage you to join ACSI when we unite across the globe to pray for Christ-centered education next year on Tuesday, February 27, 2024.

2024 Day of Prayer Theme: Faithfulness

This year’s theme is faithfulness. A hymn often comes to mind called, “Great is Thy Faithfulness.” It was written by Thomas Chisholm in 1923. Despite not having a high school or college education, Mr. Chisholm became a schoolteacher at 16, his Kentucky hometown newspaper associate editor at age 21, and a Methodist ordained pastor after accepting Jesus as his personal Lord and Savior in his mid-20’s. He wrote poems and sent a collection to a musician friend, William Runyan who created the melody to “Great is Thy Faithfulness”. The song became more meaningful when Evangelist Billy Graham began using it in his crusades in the 1950’s. Based on Lamentations 3:22-23, the song declares God’s unchanging character even in changing circumstances. Throughout scripture, we see God stays true to His promises. He is steadfast. He is trustworthy. He never fails. God is faithful. No matter how big or small your need, just like he fed the Israelites manna (Exodus 16), he will provide for our daily needs. Just as God is faithful, we should remain faithful to Him to stand for righteousness even when it’s hard. And as a see the Day approaching, we should be faithful to “spur one another on toward love and good deeds” (Hebrews 10:24-25). We pray that this theme allows you and your school community to celebrate God’s faithfulness while committing to stay faithful to God and each other. Our theme verse found in Isaiah 25:1 also reminds us that God has “done wonderful things, things planned long ago”. This simple reassurance can teach students that God has a special purpose and plan for their lives.
