Day of Prayer Tuesday February 28 2023
View Site In:  English  |  Español

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 28, 2023.

2022 Day of Prayer Theme: Shalom

Last year, the Day of Prayer celebrated ACSI’s Flourishing School Culture Model research which measures school strengths in five main areas - well-being, purpose, relationships, expertise and resources. This year’s theme, “Shalom,” takes our focus on flourishing a step further.

Shalom is more than a Hebrew greeting. It’s more than just about well-being. It is an understanding that we have a part to play in God’s larger story. Before time began, God planned for you and your school to make a difference in your community, right where you are, for such a time as this. It is contentment found in Jesus no matter the cultural tides encircling us. When the shalom of the Lord is present, there is flourishing.

Let’s unleash the Lord’s shalom into this world of chaos!



Schools and individuals can be a part of this global day of prayer by posting a prayer request on our interactive map, and by encouraging or inviting other participants to unite in prayer.


You can make this day as simple or elaborate as you want, praying personally or creating an experience for you and others. Our prayer guide gives plenty of ideas on how to plan!


Whether you are planning a Day of Prayer event or praying on your own, you can help promote this day through social media and through your community with the hashtag #SchoolsThatPray.
