This semester, I am learning the importance of being present and available. I have especially looked forward to the way Allen (not-yet believer), has become more curious about my life - which is a life devoted to following Christ. Allen shared with me that he has made it a priority to go to the BSM every Tuesday for lunch to talk with me. He feels like a mess and loves having meaningful conversations with me where the purpose and focus is so clear. Allen has helped me understand the influence I have on others and how the fruit of gentleness and self-control pays off.

  • Pray for students like Allen who feel lost and alone. Pray God would lead them to people like Lucas who are prepared and ready to share their life with Christ.
  • Pray that our staff and student leaders across Texas would live a life so compelling to the gospel that others cannot ignore it.

Pausing and Praying with you,
