FRANKLIN — Tennessee Baptists and churches are encouraged to participate in the annual weekend of prayer for students across Tennessee.
The first weekend in August was proclaimed as the annual weekend of prayer for students and was signed into law by then Governor Bill Haslam on April 24, 2015, according the pray4studentstn.com website.
“Our students need our prayers more than ever,” said Jay Barbier, youth specialist for the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board. “If we ever want to see a movement of God among the next generation it will need to start with us praying,” he added.
Barbier noted that “God has graciously given us an amazing opportunity to set foot on public school campuses across Tennessee and intercede for a mighty revival to spread across our state.”
The pray4studentstn.com website offers the following suggestions on how to participate in the weekend of prayer.
- Organize a Campus Prayer Walk at your local school. If you would like to help coordinate prayer at a school near you, please contact us email@example.com
- Contact the principals of your local schools to let them know that your church is praying for their schools. Ask for a list of faculty members so that your church can pray for each of them by name.
- Plan a 24-hour prayer vigil in your community.
- Join a “Moms in Prayer” group and impact our students and schools for Christ. For more information about Moms in Prayer visitwww.momsinprayer.org.
“Could it be possible that we would see students saved and set on the road to discipleship if we were to pray?” Barbier asked. “I would love to see people represented from every generation walking around and through schools to pray.” B&R — For more information, visit https://pray4studentstn.com/about-the-weekend/.
