On 19 September at 1am, 19 Nanyang Technological University students gathered together for their first overnight prayer meeting on campus.
There was excitement and anticipation in the air as the students turned the all familiar school canteen into a zone of praise and worship. Following that, the group went on a prayer walk from faculty to faculty, praying for the school.
The prayer meeting ended at 5.30am after a four and a half hour walk around the campus. It was not only a test of spiritual tenacity but also of one’s physical fitness given the hill-like terrain of the campus grounds.
This overnight prayer walk, being the first of many to come, blessed everyone present. Many now have an increased burden and desire for a greater move of God in NTU.
Indeed, everything great is birthed forth from people who are willing to stand in the gap and pray for God to move.
