A group of City Harvesters from Singapore Management University (SMU) have begun to meet and pray every morning on campus.
Inspired by the morning prayer meetings conducted by church during the month of August, the students made a commitment to gather every morning to prayer together on their campus. The first 45 minutes are dedicated to personal prayer time, followed by corporate prayer for the remaining 15 minutes. Thereafter, a leader in the group shares an exhortation from the Word of God to encourage the students to shine for God on campus.
Teng Xiaohui, a 2nd year law student, shares,” I feel that God is doing something new in SMU.”
The group intends to pray daily for the rest of the school term, believing that God will continue to prosper their days as they seek Him first each morning. Shane Ng, a freshman who attends these morning prayer meetings regularly, says that he feels strengthened by the tangible presence of God that is felt during the meetings.
“Although it can be a struggle to wake up so early in the morning, I find that I have greater focus during the day when I put God first in the morning.”
