"Prayer Angels"

Prayer Angels is a new student-initiated prayer group on campus that has two goals: 1) to spread the awareness and power of prayer, 2) to break down religious divides. Anonymous prayer requests can be submitted, using this Wufoo form,  and each request will be distributed to the "prayer angels," who will personally pray for each intention. Anyone can submit a prayer request. Contact Ashley for more information.
