Week of July 1
Pray for InterVarsity staff participating in our National Institute for Staff Education and Training (NISET), now through July 3, in Madison, Wisconsin. Ask the Lord to use the NISET classes—which include everything from Manuscript Bible Study Leadership to Praying for Spiritual Breakthrough to White Identity and Ministry to Systematic Theology for college credit—so staff can be better prepared as they serve students and faculty across the nation.
A quadrennial event, the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES) World Assembly is July 3-11 in South Africa. Pray for safe travels, smooth connections, and good experiences with immigration and customs, and that the South African IFES movement, which is hosting, would see the Lord provide strength and help for all the logistics.
The US Independence Day holiday is a time to reflect on the freedoms we enjoy as citizens and thank God for those who have sacrificed for our freedoms. Praise God that Philippians 3:20 reminds us “our citizenship is in heaven.”
