The Prayer Ministry at OBU focuses on praying for the various Campus Ministries, their leaders, and for requests sent in by students. Our team meets once a week an hour before Refuge. We spend time praying over the coming service, and then we pray for the submitted requests and for each other. One of the great things about this ministry is that you truly get to know the team members as you pray with and for each other. What I love about this ministry is that you learn about God in a unique way as you spend intentional time in prayer with other Christians.
As the ministry leader for Prayer, I’ve seen God move in amazing ways through this ministry. At the beginning of last year, we all prayed someone would meet Christ for the first time at Refuge. After praying for months, one of our team members bounced into the prayer room, announcing we had a new sister in Christ! It was such a blessing to see God answer prayer in such a tangible way. Prayer isn’t the flashiest of ministries, but the community and joy God brings in this ministry are irreplaceable.
