Revival on college campus in the U-S is a prayer priorty

By July 13, 2006

USA (MNN) — The Institute of Campus Revival and Awakening held on the Yale University Campus in New Haven, Connecticut recently could be the beginning of something significant. That’s the message from the Director of Collegiate Impact at Life Action Revival Ministries’ Dave Warn.

Warn says, “We had 57 ministry leaders from around the country visit us at Yale, most of whom are campus ministry leaders. And we focused on how to see a visitation from God on our campuses and to really see our campuses transformed.”

The weeklong institute featured various speaker and breakout sessions, says Warn. “We’re really hoping that fires of revival are ignited this fall, the fall semester 2006, around the country. We believe that as God continues to lead and we follow Him that we will see visitations from the Holy Spirit that cause campus transformation.”

According to Warn, there appears to be an even greater openness to the Gospel among college freshman than in years past. He believes prayer was the reason for it last year. “We can identify 70 to 80 locations where there were 24/7 prayer rooms. Some lasted for 40 days, some went for a who semester, some went longer, but students praying around the clock.”

There’s no way to know for sure what’s going to happen this year, says Warn, but one things for certain, Christians need to be the first to change. “Many need God to do a deep work in them to prepare the way, in terms of their own brokenness over sin. In their student ministries there needs to be preparation in the area of repentance or prayer in all of these areas and so we want to help them to prepare for the next great awakening.”

Begin praying now that God would work in the hearts of believers on college campuses and that as they confess their sins, they’ll be more open about their faith.
