The Bryan community will pause for its fall Day of Prayer Wednesday, November 2, and spend time trying to better understand and practice this most important discipline.
Ben Norquist, director of Faith and Mission, said the day’s theme will be “With You Always,” a reminder of God’s constant presence in Believer’s lives and the opportunity to be in continual communication with Him.
Dr. Peter Held, senior fellow for Christian worldview, will speak in chapel on the topic of prayer from a biblical perspective. He will continue that thought in chapel on Nov. 4. “We want to help resolve some of the tension around the question of when we pray, do we move the hand of a Sovereign God?” Mr. Norquist said.
“He will be doing some shepherding, not just doctrinally, but will address how to develop a vibrant, vital prayer life.”
Jeff Eenigenburg, director of Worship Arts, said he hopes students and others will come to view prayer as “ongoing throughout the day, a practice of the presence of God idea in a person’s life. Prayer is a blanket that envelops a Christian. I’d love for the Day of Prayer somehow to model that.”
Beyond that, Mr. Norquist added, “As a college, we have a desire for students to leave here not just knowing about prayer, but being pray-ers. And that only comes through practice.”
