Day 3 Evening

This week continues to be an amazing week together. We are seeing breakthrough within so many lives! Earlier in the evening, a group met and talked about the things they’ve seen God doing and any highlights from the week so far. Many missionaries from other parts of the world have been joining our online prayer times. It has been so encouraging to hear their stories and see their faces.

One theme that has been repeating throughout this week has been praying for those we love who are not yet saved. On Sunday, there was a word shared about continuing to pray for the lost, and that this year many would come to a saving faith. But we needed to press in. During the afternoon prayer, led by Cindy and Ginny, the group spent time praying for anyone who wasn’t a believer. Some of the circles during the evening prayer time have been doing the same thing.
Our Tuesday night prayer transitioned to OSU’s campus for the night as we joined Real Life. We prayed that God would move in the lives of the college students and on the campus, that strongholds would be released and lives would be turned over to the Lord. Each prayer meeting has been full of college students and many people have been encouraged to see them eager for the Lord and praying prayers of faith. The students have a genuine love for each other and it has been overflowing into each of our prayer times.

During this time of prayer with over 200 college students, lives were transformed and chains were broken. Hearts cried out to make an impact for the Lord on campus and in classes, and that a spirit of boldness would overcome each student to share the love and Truth of Jesus. After crying out for the students who are lost, many circles turned to praying for people individually. Vulnerability led the way for breakthrough and healing. At least one student came to the Lord on Tuesday night after being invited to the prayer gathering by a classmate. We continue to praise the Lord for all that He is doing in this younger generation.

Below is a note from a leader who attended:
"Last night was amazing! It was like God calling us out of the safety of our church building to the streets of Corvallis. Once worship started hearts softened and walls came down. Prayer circles were so awesome and powerful. A young man we’ve been praying for during the last several months at Saturday’s prayers was there with his mom! I was so encouraged by him even being there and can’t wait to hear the rest of his story!!!
Powerful night and my first of many Lord willing!"
