Day 6. 605.
If you’ve been around the Passion 07 Live Link or the Podcast you’ve heard us talking about South Dakota…our nation’s 40th state. And why all the SD talk? We have almost 21,000 people registered for 07 from 49 states and 31 nations, but no one representing “the 605”–South Dakota’s only area code. We have discovered we have people coming who are South Dakotans, but they are now outside the state and headed our way from other places in the US.
So, we’ve stopped asking where the SD people are and decided we should be praying for the campuses and students there. And for us, South Dakota has come to represent many places throughout the nation that won’t be as visible in Atlanta. Would you take some time today to pray for students on the following campuses:
Augustana College, Black Hills State University, Dakota State University, Dakota Wesleyan University, Northern State University, Oglala Lakota College, South Dakota School of Mines and technology, South Dakota State University, University of Sioux Falls, University of South Dakota.
As we pray for students in SD, let’s keep spreading the word about Passion 07 and bring more people along with us. And let’s be willing to reach SD with the story of God.
Father, we know You are alive and well throughout South Dakota. Inspire leaders of the church there and raise up a wave of students filled with the hope and power of Jesus. For His fame in SD, Amen.
“Everyone who calls, ‘Help, God!’ gets help.” But how can people call for help if they don’t know who to trust? And how can they know who to trust if they haven’t heard of the One who can be trusted? And how can they hear if nobody tells them? And how is anyone going to tell them, unless someone is sent to do it? That’s why Scripture exclaims, ‘A sight to take your breath away! Grand processions of people telling all the good things of God!’” Romans 10:13-15 The Message
