United in Prayer is a University based initiative that mobilizes students and workers of Dutch Universities to pray
We pray to:
- be united in Christ at the university
- be equipped for His purposes at the university
- stand in the gap for our fellow students and employees at Dutch universities
Who we are:
We are a group of students and workers from different faculties and churches in Dutch universities that are passionate about seeing God work on our campus.
We have seen that God cares for us and wants to be involved in our lives above all expectations. Not only to the people taking part in United in Prayer, but to everyone at Dutch universities that dares to ask Him. It is for this reason that we pray for everyone in Dutch universities to become curious who that awesome God is!
What we believe:
We believe that God has created us, people, for his glory. We believe that he has sent his son Jesus to pay the price for our sins by his death and resurrection at the cross, so that we can now live freely and unashamed in Him.
Can I take part?
For sure! Please send a message on the contact page! If you are not a Christian, but want to know what this is all about feel free to contact as well!
History of United in Prayer
The United in Prayer initiative started in spring 2010, when a few students of TU Delft came together with a desire to pray for our fellow students that we could not ignore.
One of us received a dream in which many, many people of TU Delft were joyfully goingthrough the gate of heaven. Another one, while praying, saw an image of the city Delft surrounded by a canal. Tirebridges were pulled up to stop all corrupt influences from entering the city, after whichthe tower of the old church started to grow, and restored God’s position in the city.
With the start of the initiative, we received this scripture text of Nehemiah as a model.In his sorrow over the miserable state of his people in Jerusalem and the city itself,Nehemiah prays to the Lord. The Lord opens a way for him to leave his work for the kingof Persia to rebuild the city walls of Jerusalem.Just like the city walls of Jeruzalem were being rebuilt, the Lord asked us to pray for our campus, and so build a spiritual wall of protection around the people.
In the past time many people have started or joined a prayer group at their faculty, and the first fruits can already be seen. Thank God, more is yet to come!
