Resources and Prayer Projects
A great Chapel experience can change your day... or your life. But often the impact fades as you rush off to your next class.
We'd like to provide opportunities to make the experience last. Here are resources that can help you go deeper into the topic discussed during a daily Chapel.
The resources are sorted by the date of the Chapel to which they refer, with newest first. The list is small now, but growing!

A Prayer for Haiti
“Pray for the healing of those whose bodies are broken and suffering.”
“Pray for comfort for those who grieve the loss of family and friends.”
“Pray for protection for the thousands who are homeless.”
“Pray for the relief workers, that the Lord would protect and sustain them.”
“Pray for the government, that they would move swiftly and wisely to their people’s aid.”
"Pray against those who would selfishly exploit others in their vulnerability."
"Pray that all who suffer would turn to the only true God in their distress."
Lord's Prayer (adapted)
Our Father, who art in heaven
hallowed be your name
Your kingdom come, your will be done
in Haiti, in America, as it is in heaven
Give the Haitians this day their daily bread.
Forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who have trespassed against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver
us and all humanity from evil.
For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory.
