From the Desk of Student Ministry
Working on the campus of LSU allows me an opportunity to see daily the questions ringing in the hearts of the students on campus. The hearts of your sons, daughters, grandchildren, friends and this world's future leaders. Their desire for happiness is palpable. Their search for answers to deep life questions is obvious. Here at Christ the King, we get to build relationships and share in the beauty of each person’s story.
Beneath this ministry is the firm foundation of intercession, the true heartbeat of any ministry. St. Mother Teresa had friends around the world who suffered; she saw each person’s offering of suffering as the spiritual strength behind every act of love she made. The prayers and sufferings of those around the world helped supply the strength she needed in her mission to love the poorest of the poor.
We have a unique opportunity here at CTK to invite students to encounter—literally—the Person of the Holy Spirit. I look back on my own prayer for adventure and surprises in college, and I see now that I was asking for the LORD to be so present in my life that I was different, that I was new, that I was free. I look back now and see that I wanted a deeper relationship; that I wanted to be free in who I was and how I lived my life. I wanted the abundance that only the Spirit can give. We want these same gifts for the students of LSU. I want them to know in the depths of their beings the very real love that is the Holy Spirit within them. Please join us in prayer over this entire campus! Please unite with us to bring to the LORD our intentions. We desire and trust in Him to bring forth miracles and healings; to break the chains and lies that bind His children. In the students’ deep desire for adventure and wonder, I believe that the answer to all the questions they’re asking is Christ.
May we have the grace to be docile to the promptings of the Spirit so that the prophecy of Pentecost might come to pass here on the grounds of Christ the King Church. May we believe firmly in the promise of God that here on the campus of LSU, He desires to work miracles and change each of us from within, confirming the words that:
“’…your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young people shall see visions, your old people dream dreams. …the promise that was made is for you and your children, and for all those who are far away, for all those whom the LORD our God is calling to himself.’”
Thank you for your prayers. Thank you for leaning into this space of hope and promise with us. The Lord, our God, is faithful, and He will not be outdone in generosity.
In His Heart,
Campus Minister at Christ the King
