Student prayer gatherings have recently cropped up at secular colleges and universities following the nonstop, two-week prayer service led by students at Asbury University. The Asbury revival drew tens of thousands of worshippers to the Christian college in Kentucky, The Christian Post reported.

Students at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green who attended the spontaneous mass event at Asbury held a prayer service that drew several hundred people last Thursday on the National Collegiate Day of Prayer, the final day of the Asbury gathering. Students at Ohio State University similarly gathered that day in their student union building and prayed until early the next morning.

“We have long been praying for and continue to pray for revival on our campus,” Tommy Johnson, a campus minister for Western Kentucky University’s Baptist Campus Ministry, told The Christian Post. “And we discussed how revival is measured not merely by how many students gather or how long they stay at an event but by the result of life change.”
