Collegiate Day of Prayer Observed Each February

For nearly 100 years, the Church in America observed a day of united prayer for God to awaken and revive college campuses. This tradition was reestablished in 2010 as the Collegiate Day of Prayer, observed annually on the last Thursday of each February.

The 2013 prayer observance on February 28 has a goal of 2,000 groups praying by name for all of the 5,584 colleges in the nation. More than 2,500 campuses had been adopted by mid-November 2012 by prayer groups representing all 50 states.

Throughout American history, colleges in America were repeatedly blessed and transformed by intense seasons of spiritual awakening. Many of the best universities in the nation have experienced historical revivals in the First and Second Great Awakenings. Often these campus revivals fueled missions movements with students who experienced these outpourings of God’s grace.

With this history in mind, leaders of many college campus ministries are joining forces to invite God to do another great work on every campus. One of the prayer goals is for “students to finish the remaining task of evangelizing every tongue, tribe, and nation in this generation for the glory and pleasure of Jesus Christ.”

The Collegiate Day of Prayer’s leadership team is an interdenominational group of friends and ministry partners who are working together to call America’s churches and colleges to unite and pray. Some of the ministries joining forces to lead the Collegiate Day of Prayer include Campus Renewal Ministries, America’s National Prayer Committee, Navigators, InterVarsity, Moms In Prayer International, 24-7 Prayer USA, International House of Prayer, and Cru.
