Renewal’s 2nd Annual Day of Prayer for God’s Creation was a great success, with Christian students from eighteen campuses across North America joining together to pray and fast for the renewal of God’s creation!
From candle-lit vigils to worship services, energy fasts, art walls, prayer meetings, and poetry readings, Christian students demonstrated their passion for creation care in a variety of creative ways!
Recognizing the severe degradation of human and environmental health caused by poor stewardship of energy resources, Renewal’s student leaders chose to focus this year’s Day of Prayer events on energy stewardship & climate change. By coming together in prayer, Renewal’s student leaders stood in solidarity with the people and places that are being harmed by poor stewardship of energy resources, and asked for grace, forgiveness, and guidance as we seek God’s help in addressing this crisis.
By happenstance, one of Renewal’s advisors was meeting with Senator Graham (SC) on this momentous day. He mentioned Renewal’s Day of Prayer and Senator Graham was so encouraged to hear that Christian students across the country were praying for the renewal of God’s creation! Praise God, our prayers are being heard!!!
