TMC issues call to prayer


On January 11, I concluded our chapel service by calling the TMC family to pray for the following:

• Students who will be driven to expand their knowledge and commitment to grow in Christ-likeness.

• Faculty who will experience joy and fulfillment in applying faith and learning in each of their classes.

• Staff who will exhibit a calling of servant leadership in relating to students, families, and one another.

• Athletic and student events that will honor God and promote a strong sense of family.

• Administrators who will seek God’s wisdom in making decisions for our college.

• Financial resources that will allow us to fulfill our mission as a college.

I have now called for the TMC family to refocus our prayers on these specific areas for the remainder of our semester.

Further, I have encouraged the entire campus to be involved in the 56th Annual National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 3. The theme is “America, Unite in Prayer” and is based on the great call to repentance needed by the followers of the Lord found in II Chron. 7:14: “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (NIV)

This year, the Christian community is being challenged to pray for America and its leadership in the five centers of power: church, education, family, government, and media. As one of the “centers of power,” Truett-McConnell College is committed to seeking after God’s own heart.

As a college, we have committed to joining with the other believers throughout America in humbling ourselves, praying, seeking God’s face, and turning from our wicked ways, in order that we will hear from heaven, our sins will be forgiven, and God will heal our land.
