We invite you to join us on Saturday, August 20th as we pray for the Washburn campus and community at the beginning of another school year.

 

Meet us at 17th and Boswell in front of Morgan Hall at 10am to get a prayer map of the campus. You will have the next hour to walk the campus and pray (or drive through the campus and pray) for the 6000 students who will call Washburn home this year.

Village-Alpha Phi #4

Prayer Passages

And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction.

Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. -Matthew 9:35-38

 

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.  Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. -Philippians 4:8-9
