Prayer is an important and powerful way to connect with God. Events like vtONE wouldn’t be possible without the prayers of believers around the campus and around the world. We humbly ask that as you pray for our campus and the upcoming event, that you consider lifting up the following in prayer.
The event itself
People come from all walks of life, from the campus, from the town, and from other cities to vtONE and God wants to do something in each and every person there. Pray that their hearts would be open for what he wants to do or say.
Pray that believers would continue to come together across ministry boundaries to further the causes that bring joy to God’s heart. Pray that God would protect us from the enemy and from the forces that cause disunity within his body here.
We are blessed to be able to meet on campus in a publicly-owned venue to lift up our voices to God. Thank him for that privilege. Pray that he would be meet us there and that he would make that space holy and that we would invite him in.
People on campus
Our campus is a diverse one. While there are many ways to break people into various groups, at the end of the day what matters is that we all need Jesus. Pray that people on our campus would be open to hearing his truth.
People at the event who have a relationship with Jesus
Pray that they would leave the event encouraged to continue to pursue him and that they would do so in a spirit of unity. Pray that their hearts would be open for repentance. Pray that they would worship openly, honestly, and without shame. Pray that God would speak powerfully to them.
People at the event who do not
It may seem odd that people without a relationship with Jesus would wander into a vtONE event, but they do and it can be absolutely amazing. Pray that they would be open to hearing God’s message of hope and redemption for their lives. Pray that God would move powerfully in their lives. Pray that he would put people in their lives to encourage them, pray for them, and to speak truthfully, powerfully, and compassionately.
vtONE would not be possible without the help of the volunteers who joyfully give their time and energy the day of the event and sometimes starting months ahead of the event. Pray that they would find joy in what they’re doing, that they would be well-rested and ready to serve during the event. Pray that they, too, would be open to hearing what God has to say during the event.
Event planning and operations staff
There is another small army of people at the event employed by the university or by production contractors. Pray for them; that whether or not they have a relationship with Jesus that they would leave the event encouraged. Pray that God would put people in their lives to answer questions or simply to live honestly and be an example, always pointing back to Jesus.
Event worship leaders and bands
Pray for rest and against anxiety. Leading worship at these events can very quickly become an overwhelming experience. We have been blessed to have people from the community and the campus who are able to lead us to worship God. Pray that they would be able to worship as well as leading us at the event.
Betty Davis, the event speaker
Pray that Betty would be able to come to the event relaxed and fully prepared to speak the words that God wants us to hear. Pray that God would speak through her and lead her as she leads us.
The prayer leaders
Not only do the prayer leaders guide us in corporate prayer, but they lead us by sharing their stories. Pray that they would be able to share openly and honestly and that their stories would connect with the people at the event. Pray that they would be able to connect with God as they lead us to connect with him as well.
vtONE leadership and advisory board members
We are a very small team and we are humbled to be a part of this movement on this campus. Pray that we would be able to manage the logistics, taking care of things and delegating others where needed. Pray for rest and encouragement. Pray for protection from the enemy. Pray that God would raise up new vtONE leaders so that the movement can continue.
Volunteers will be available during the event to pray with those who request it.
