Andy, the guy in the middle of the above picture, took the lead in launching a weekly campus prayer gathering despite being a little uncomfortable with praying in public. We meet on campus at UA in the Union from 11am-1pm on Mondays. On our second week of prayer we more than doubled in size and length of time! We take up prayer requests each week at our Tuesday night worship gathering (The Well) and use them as starting points for prayer on Mondays.
We are trying to be visible and reach out more in our prayer. That explains the basket. We set that out with the accompanying paper to make it a little more obvious what we are doing, without being obnoxious. Honestly, we’re just trying to do something new. At this point I’m really excited about it!
Look for this guy with his prayer basket! Of course we had to give him a hard time about carrying around that basket, but I’m thankful for Andy and his heart to start an on-campus prayer time.
