Bucs Pray - 40 Days of Prayer
  • Spiritual

While we don’t always understand how, God promises to show up and be present when God’s people commit to prayer. A group of people committed to prayer can change the world. Not because of the ability of the people, but because of the power of God. The Board has given us specific prompts to pray for each day, and every family, every student, every faculty member, every alumnus, and every friend is being asked to commit to praying as a community for the next 40 days.
