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!
Our activities are centered around prayer and outreach. United in Prayer is active in Delft and Utrecht. Please visit the pages for each city to find more information about activities taking place in each city.
Most faculties have prayer once every two weeks. Don’t hesitate to join if you are curious! At the end of each month, usually a prayer for all coördinators takes place.
Outreach frequently takes places and is open to every Christian that is enthusiast about sharing faith.
Testimony By Ruth
A couple of years ago I was totally surprised to find out that there is God. And even more so that He is willing to connect with us people. In my usual down to earth approach to things, I considered faith irrelevant and fake before. But after I got to know some straightforward and well thinking people that seemed to be sure about God, I realized my simple ‘I will never know for sure but it sounds ridiculous’ was not a very intelligent way to deal with life.
I decided to take the risk and just told God that if he existed I wanted to connect. And how He did show himself!!
Now, three years later I can say that it is exciting to put your trust in God, for he is trustworthy aswell as challenging! What amazed me most about God in last years is that he doesn’t want to narrow me in any way. There is a bible verse that says ‘for I will walk at liberty’. Maybe I imagined God as somebody asking me to become someone I don’t want to be, meanwhile pointing at all that is wrong about me. But in reality he sees what is valuable even more then I can see myself, and he helps me to unbind and get rid of anything that keeps me from flourishing. I can only say, please don’t waste a life of purpose by not seeking after it! And feel free to contact if you want to know more…
