The University of Findlay’s 7th annual Campus Day of Prayer will be held from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. this Thursday, Oct. 5, at the flagpole in front of Old Main, 1000 N. Main Street.
In light of the recent tragedy in Las Vegas, Nevada, and in recognition of other challenges and meaningful events experienced, members of the public are invited to join University students, faculty and staff in this contemplative effort, sponsored by Campus Ministries, which is intended to embrace peace and faith.
“The Day of Prayer is such a beautiful opportunity each year to come together, especially in the midst of such uncertain and unsettling times,” said Pastor Matt Ginter, director of Campus Ministries.
Visitors will not be required, but will be encouraged to sign a prayer sheet offered at the venue, and are welcome to use the prayer guides that will be available to assist them with quiet prayer for however long they wish.
A hallmark of UF’s Campus Day of Prayer includes ensuring that someone, during the entire 13-hour period, is praying at the location. Campus Ministry is organizing a sign-up effort with the campus community for 15-minute prayer block coverage, but all are welcome to pray at any time during the day.
