Subject: DAY 39 IN 40 DAYS OF PRAYER for revival !! Cal State Berkeley fires up for 48–Long Beach has lit a torch!
As the report came in from Long Beach—50 students packed in the prayer room during the last hours of prayer, tearful intercession for a true awakening on the campus, and a pastor who offered a permanent room for ongoing prayer for their campus—the same thing was beginning the 48 prayer room at Berkeley…30 students were packed into a prayer room–worshipping, praying, confessing one to another, interceding, and praying for healing.
Because I had spoken at an all campus meeting at Berkeley in October, it felt like I was coming home to pray with familiar faces and old friends—one of my favorite memories will be praying with Albert over the entire campus map of Berkeley for an extended time—it was almost as if you could see the faces of the 35,000 students…and feel how much Jesus wanted to meet with them…we began to pray that their hearts would be open to Him before the 48 hours was over! (Why wait?)
Oh it was such a sweet/great/powerful opening meeting and I know the prayers of these students will see the answers sought! Just as exciting as 40 Days of Prayer for Revival on College Campuses, Berkeley is also in the midst of 40 days of prayer for an outpouring of God on/for their campus (their 40 Days House of prayer story is AMAZING!!!). So Roger (my husband) and I shuttled over to the Berkeley House of Prayer, as well, to pray! It is always so spiritually moving to meet and pray with students who have dedicated “a season” of their lives to praying!! Again, connections were made, words were spoken, and prayers were prayed that convinced me that there is MUCH more to come…
I might add, while in the Berkeley prayer room, a message came from Calvin, that they would join Taylor in praying through the final day of 24/40 and Berkeley’s House of Prayer will join in, as well. Anyone else for one more 24 hour prayer room on your campus for revival in America…?
Email your 40daysreport for the 2/28 meeting!
The Southern California Day 40 Corporate Worship Celebration at Saddleback will be a time of testimony as well. PLNU, CSULB, and others will be sharing their stories in person. If your school would like to send a short email that can be posted during our service, I would love to include your story!!
At the beginning of Day 40 on 2/28 at 6pm PST, anyone in Southern California who would like to meet for prayer and worship–to culminate all 40 Days of prayer for revival on college campuses as a community—is welcome to meet at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Ca. (www.saddleback.org) in Tent #2.
The prayer opportunities continue beginning March 1—with 40 Days of prayer “face down” called Uprising with Lou Engle in Boston (www.jhopboston.com/uprising/ ) and an upcoming meeting at Asbury for all praying students on March 11, 2006 at 6 pm.
Be encouraged and stay fired up!
