Greetings,

Our next Worldwide Day of Prayer (WDP) will be Tuesday, April 22. Some of us will come together in small groups to pray. Others will gather in much larger groups. Whatever your context, it is a great privilege to be part of a global movement that commits itself to prayer. Prayer is a central part of who we are.

The biblical theme of our day comes from Hebrews 12:2: “Fixing Our Eyes on Jesus.”

The recent Winter Olympic Games featured many different events. But no matter which event, all of the athletes were disciplined and persistent toward their focus. In our pursuit to see spiritual movements everywhere, we must be diligent to maintain our focus on Christ.

It is not difficult to slip into a pattern where the time demands of ministry compete with our ability to put God first. The self-effort of athletes reaps rewards. But fruitfulness in ministry comes as we remain dependent upon God and keep our eyes fixed on Jesus. When we pray with our whole heart, that happens.

Join me in setting aside the fourth Tuesday in April to re-focus our hearts and minds on Him. And over these next few weeks, I invite you to take a fresh, thoughtful look at Hebrews 12:1-3.

Running this race together,

Steve Douglass
President, Campus Crusade for Christ/Cru
