About the 40 Days of Prayer for PSU

Nov 25, 2011 4:43:17 AM / by Chris Heinz


As the events unfolded at Penn State starting in November 2011, we believed God was saying important things.

The best hope for change is to agree with God by saying what He’s saying. The lion has fallen, and we are in free fall. But if we heed God’s words, a New Lion will arise in Lion Country.

With this goal, we created an email series called, “40 Days of Prayer for PSU.” It began as 30 days, but as it started, we felt like it deserved 40 days.

We prayed for the brokenhearted and the accused. We prayed for humility and self-reflection. We prayed for things to change.

For 40 days, subscribers received a daily email with a different prayer point, scripture, and short devotional.

The emails were based on, “The Lion Has Fallen: Four Things I Believe God Is Saying To Lion Country” and its prayer guide, “A New Lion Rising.” If you would like to pray the Bible verse in each email, here are some pointers on how to do that.

There are three supernatural results of saying what God is saying. The 40 Days of Prayer for PSU are part of a bigger story of what God is doing.

We partnered with Beyond the Silence, which is dedicated to telling the stories of the sexually abused and helping those in need.
