Longview, TX — LeTourneau University students, led by senior biology education major Megan Hillmann of Simla, Colo., will lead this new event, which she hopes will unite people in prayer around the university’s campus loop.
Hillman says, “Pray the Loop is a call to all believers from every facet of LeTourneau University to take just 30 minutes to stand together to pray for God’s direction, protection and will to be done at our alma mater so that we can fulfill His will in every area. We will lay down our worries, stresses, and fears as we pray that the common heart on campus will be to ‘Seek ye first the Kingdom of God’ before we pursue ‘all that will be added unto you.”
Prayer sheets will be available. She said she hopes about 1,800 people will completely ring the loop of the university.
LETU President Dr. Dale A. Lunsford applauds the student’s initiative as a great example of how our students seek God’s direction for themselves and for their university, and noted that this event will focus on the university’s founder's life verse during this homecoming weekend April 12-14 when so many alumni will be back on campus.
