UMaine student groups team up for February 27th Day of Prayer with ‘missional’ focus


UMaine chapters of the InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, Navigators, and Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru) are teaming up to provide prayer and worship opportunities for students during the 2014 Collegiate Day of Prayer.

Everyone — community members and students — are invited to attend and participate.

Scheduled to begin at 7:00 AM on February 27th, plans are to host 24 hours of prayer in the Drummond Chapel on the third floor of the Memorial Union. There will also be a prayer tent on the campus mall 11am to 3pm where students can stop by with their prayer needs.

A noon-time prayer will be held in the FFA Room on the 2nd floor of the Union where all are encouraged to gather together to pray in a united voice for the campus and student body.

Finally, a corporate worship service is on tap for 9:30pm on the 27th in the Bangor Room of the Union.


A major focus of the event is the idea of missional prayer — where students pray to discern God’s plan for their campus, and how they can be used to advance those plans.

The prayer room will be set up for praying through various themes, including a station with arts supplies, a repentance station (for personal confessional prayer), and a missions station (praying for campus-wide salvation). Participants can prayer in hour shifts, or simply come and pray as they feel led, until the 24 hours of prayers ends at 7:00 AM on the 28th.

For anyone wanting more information or to get involved, please contact Dave Roderick with UMaine InterVarsity.
