Do this, knowing the time, that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed. ROMANS 13:11
Depending on your college campus, there may be 40-50 campus ministries or 4-5 (and on some campuses you might be the only one!). Regardless of the number of believers, the issues facing the believers on each campus are by and large the same. But we believe, especially through the power of fasting and prayer, that God will break-in in an unprecedented way.
The awakening of the hearts of believers is the key to any kind of revival, and without it, we are lost in our myriad of issues. It might be compromise, division, or lack of vision. But the root of it all is spiritual slumber: slumber towards His Holiness, slumber towards His love, and slumber towards His Great Commission. What we need, more than anything, is for a spiritual awakening in the believers on our campuses.
E.M. Bounds, the mighty intercessor, wrote, “God is not looking for better methods, He is looking for better men.” That is, God’s Church is His instrument to carry out His purposes on the earth. Our programs and our events avail nothing if we are slumbering in it. As long as the enemy can keep us slumbering, then we as a Body of Christ are crippled. Before we can see the salvation of the lost or another missions movement, we must pray for the Lord to revive His people.
Pray for God to revive believers to His purposes for their campus. Pray for students to realize their depravity apart from the Lord. Pray for conviction of sin and the fear of the Lord on college campuses across America.
