St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and Grace Place Campus Ministry will offer #Prayers2Pass, an interactive prayer event for the students, faculty and staff of Northern Illinois University and anyone else who needs a prayer in the week leading up to finals.
#Prayers2Pass will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday at 900 Normal Road in DeKalb.
“We noticed this past Ash Wednesday when offering ‘Ashes on the Go’ that many students were stressed out and appreciated our offers of prayer. So we created the Prayers2Pass event so that we could remember students in our prayers as they prepare for finals and summer break,” the Rev. Stacy Walker-Frontjes, rector of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, said in a news release.
Episcopal priests and members of St. Paul’s and Grace Place Campus Ministry will offer one-to-one personal short prayers, a prayer wall for written petitions (anonymity respected) and snacks and energy drinks. St. Paul’s also will maintain a prayer presence all day at its Twitter feed, @StPaulsDeKalb #prayers2pass. Prayer requests can be made via Twitter or anonymously through www.prayers2pass.com.
From 6 to 7 p.m., a prayer vigil will be held in the sanctuary at St. Paul’s for all the petitions received throughout the day. All are welcome to attend any of these events in person or online.
