Praises & Prayers
Praises at ACT UT
We praise God for all of the growth both spiritually and numerically we have seen during the Fall semester. God has built a wonderful foundation for the future.
We praise God for a wonderful, new group of leaders who have taken hold of our mission and vision! We are excited about our new Student Leadership Team (SLT) that move into leadership roles. We are especially excited to see new faces! Two of our first year students will serve on the SLT this Spring.
We praise God for the continuing commitment to Scripture reading. January 1 began our new focus on the “Essential 100" daily reading plan. This plan is an achievable way to have a "through the Bible" experience.
Praise God for all of the positive interactions we had during the Active Christians Today Donut Giveaway at the UT Carlson Library during exam week. Two nights and dozens and dozens of donuts later... it was awesome!
Praise God for the results of our Sunday night Advent series. Some students had never participated in any kind of Advent observance. Our series “The Gifts of Christmas” brought the true Reason for the season into focus.
Praise God for the results of our “Coin War: Help Haiti” challenge. We raised over $200 to help with the cleanup of the destruction from Hurricane Matthew.
Prayer Requests at ACT UT
Pray for our new Student Leadership Team (SLT) as they begin their work. There is a tangible excitement among our SLT with all of the great things we have seen God do through our team during the Fall semester.
Pray for those who are taking on the Essential 100 challenge! Bible reading daily is not easy, especially with the school and job world taking up so much time.
Pray for those who are still deciding whether to take on the Essential 100 challenge. May God multiply their time and help them find ways to be able to accomplish all that they must do and still find time in the Word and in prayer.
Pray for our staff as they seek God’s leadership and discernment in God’s will for ACT UT through the Spring semester and beyond. God has built the foundation, now we ask for His help in determining the direction for the future! The University of Toledo has decided to move to a 15 week semester in the Fall. We ask God to work in us as we adapt to the new schedule!
As always, we covet the prayers and support of our ACT alumni and supporters. We continue to live out the mission and ACT through your continued prayers and financial support! THANK YOU!
