As difficult as it is to summarize an entire Year of Prayer (and the five years leading up to it, for that matter), we wanted to take a look back at the incredible response to the simple call to prayer put forth by Campus America. Based on our Prayer Calendar alone, we logged 26,000+ hours of prayer, which included 174 campuses.
The warmth of Christmas day is still with me, as is that seasonal bloated feeling that comes with eating too much turkey. The Christmas feast stays a while and, in the UK at least, the 26th December is a second public holiday we call Boxing Day.
Christmas Day approaches and Jesus followers around the world are preparing to celebrate the day God “became flesh and blood and moved into the neighbourhood” (John1:14). As I finish wrapping gifts and buy the last ingredients for our festive feast, my attention turns to the preparation of my heart.

We strode down the corridor, tripping over trailing flightbags and scanning the signs, ‘Ausgang’ and ‘Gepack’. On the first door inside the terminal, a sign caught my eye, ‘Gebetsraum fur Juden’, a star of David, a sign for synagogue timings.
Welcome to one of the most wonderful and challenging times of year; a season of active waiting and preparation before Christmas which begins with ‘Stir Up Sunday’ this Sunday, 21st, (I’ll explain the name in a bit), followed by Thanksgiving in America on Thursday 25th and Advent Sunday throughout the Western church on the 28th November. The season of Advent is an invitation, an opportunity for spiritual intentionality, reflection and prayer in which you may like to renew disciplines such as daily bible study, physical exercise, journaling, reading a Christian book, running a season of 24-7 prayer, or arranging a ‘how am I doing?’ chat with a friend.
The Sainsbury’s till receipt on my desk reads: Radox Shower gel, Taste the Difference Orange Juice w/ juicy bits, Ben and Jerry’s Baked Alaska, Pomodoro Tomatoes. The till receipt beneath it is from the in-store Starbucks.
“Where should I look?” Is the uncertain question I direct at the young man behind the complicated recording equipment. (There’s nothing that provokes uncomfortable self-analysis like a video camera.
International relief organisations estimate there are 300,000 – 400,000 children working as prostitutes in the United States and the average age of someone entering into prostitution in the US is just 12 years old. I’d like to take a moment to share my heart with you about a particular trafficking issue that has been a growing passion of mine over the last three years.
The pain of the past week is just too severe to mention in full. There are only some things I can share, but please know there are certain things that are too painful, difficult and delicate for me to write about here.
