World Student Day of Prayer 2017

Every fall, OU’s chapter of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship takes part in an international event called World Student Day of Prayer. InterVarsity is a part of the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students, which parents Christian student fellowships on campuses in 84 countries. On World Student Day, students from all those fellowships pray together for each other and the world.

This World Student Day, I focused on praying for students in the countries I visited on my study abroad trip – China, Taiwan, Singapore, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam. Christians are rare in many of these countries, but believers are there – China has the fastest-growing Christian population of any nation in the world. I read prayer cards from students, looked at fact sheets, and examined souvenirs and artifacts from these countries as I prayed for them. It was a really unique opportunity to pray for believers in other parts of the world and learn about them at the same time.
