Pray for America Bus Tour: This Generation

news leader.jpgThe National Day of Prayer (NDP) team set out this fall on another bus tour across America, this time focusing on college and university campuses. From September 9 to November 4, a busload of team members representing various ministries traveled 6,000 miles and visited 45 campuses in 24 states with their message: we need God to work in extraordinary ways in this generation.

In May 2013 the NDP team launched its first bus tour—and since then it has journeyed through 45 states, visited more than 500 communities, and touched more than 130,000 people with the encouragement to pray for various spheres of influence (church, media, education, government, military, family, and business).

John Bornschein, NDP vice chairman, believes this year’s campus bus tour is crucial because of the way religious freedoms and the nation’s Christian heritage and belief system have been under attack on school campuses. But in spite of the challenges, he is encouraged. “Over the past two years, we have heard hundreds of testimonies and [have] personally witnessed a stirring of the Holy Spirit among young people nationwide—a generation crying out for revival and awakening,” he says, “a generation asking God to ‘reset’ our culture.”

The tour began at Harvard and will end on November 4 in Washington, D.C., where they will pray for the Department of Education. Some of the 45 campuses visited include Yale, Penn State, Ohio State, Wheaton, Virginia Tech, University of Iowa, Clemson, and Purdue. At each campus stop, team members prayed with faculty, staff, campus ministry leaders, and students.

Several organizations worked alongside NDP on the tour, including RESET, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Youth with a Mission, Collegiate Day of Prayer, Circuit Riders, Campus Renewal, the Navigators, Cru, and Fellowship of Christian Athletes. To learn more, go to
