Previous UMSMprays Programs:

Weekly Bible Study Program

Weekly Study Program (Summer 2013)
As you serve this summer, you will learn much about the gifts, challenges, and call God has give you. Take time each week to gather with friends or teammates for this Bible study that focuses on vocational discernment and listening to God. Each week will feature a video clip, scripture verses and discussion questions, a project to complete and discuss in the group, and an activity or type of prayer to practice throughout the next week. The weekly themes go along with the themes for daily prayer, too, to provide spiritual consistency throughout your summer. (Program ended August 2013)



Daily Prayer Program

Daily Prayer Text Message (Summer 2013)
Take time to reflect on your experiences, seek God’s peace, and connect with brothers and sisters serving around the world through Daily Prayer. Each weekday morning you’ll receive a text message with scripture to frame your day and a related daily prayer-in-action challenge ranging from journaling to taking and posting a photo to tweeting a prayer for someone in need. Reflect on the scripture and prayer activity throughout the day as you seek to pray without ceasing and to increase your awareness of God’s work in and around you. By using the social media tags, you join a community of students who are seeking to grow in faith and service and are praying for each other on the journey. (Program ended August 2013)


prayerCampus Prayathon (Fall 2013)
