WWVA Holds Week of Prayer

Walla Walla Valley Academy held the first Week of Prayer for the school year during the last week of October. Brian Reed from Spokane, Wash., delivered a message about reconnecting with Jesus and gave helpful tips on deepening your spiritual life. His message was relevant and practical to each student. Reed, who spoke for a WWVA Week of Prayer two years ago, was a hit with students, faculty and parents alike.

The week provided spiritual motivation and rejuvenation for everyone. Many students participated up front, from leading out in special music and song service, to scripture and prayer.

Every day, before and after school, Reed invited students down to the gym for prayer and support. The sessions helped to focus the Week of Prayer, and many students attended. Prayer requests were collected in a basket throughout the week, and they were each prayed for during these meetings.

This weeklong focus on prayer and communication with God was uplifting and inspirational, say students. It was a positive and rejuvenating week for the entire school community.
