In the parable of the persistent widow, Jesus taught us, “keep praying, don’t stop!” In Matthew 9:37-38 Jesus taught us to “ask for laborers for the harvest”, and in Matthew 7-7-11 Jesus taught us to “ask, seek and knock”! Before Jesus began His public ministry, He retreated for 40 days to the wilderness where He prayed and fasted. This time of prayer prepared Him for the intense work that would shape the next three years of His life and ultimately the greatest sacrifice He would ever make.
Prayer is foundational for the ministry of Texas BSM and our churches as 1.5 million college students return in mid to late August! Our vision for Texas BSM is to “engage the 1.5 million college students in Texas to follow Christ and transform the world.” We partner with churches to reach the vast “harvest field” on Texas universities and colleges.
Pass the word and encourage others in your church to be a part of these 40 Days of Prayer. What might God do if we pray?
How to Join Us in Praying:
These days will take us from the final days of preparation for the semester through the first week of classes on most campuses. Just as Joshua and Aaron held up the arms of Moses while the Children of Israel were in battle, will you hold up these Texas BSM missionaries and their work during this key time of the semester?
* We have tried to include all of our BSM staff in the guide, but space prohibited including the over 600 Baptist Churches in Texas reaching out to students. Please include them as you pray specifically for various BSM’s around the state.
