124 Hours Down, 44 To Go
The 24-7 prayer movement at Arizona State University has been amazing. I have been able to spend many hours down at the school this past week and have witnessed the ramifications of bringing this type of Spirit to a campus ranked #3 on Playboy's party schools list.
Most of my time there has been spent alone as I hold down a prayer bloc or two. Sometimes it is hard to focus. After all, thousands of students are pouring by the prayer area throughout the day. Sororities and Fraternity's gear up for "A" week and situate themselves within shouting distance of our area. Music blares as a rocker screams out mild profanity to the delight of onlookers. Nevertheless, God is there. Right there, in the midst of all this chaos. He meets me there as I lift up prayer for ASU and whatever else is on my heart.
50,000+ students, faculty, employees, etc. have been lifted up to God for about 124 hours straight now. Some crazy stuff has happened in this time. We will continue through Palm Sunday. I cannot wait to share more with you, so keep a close ear.
