48 hours to pray together for students around the globe.

World Student Day is an annual day that unites our global movement – students, staff, and supporters – to celebrate all that God is doing through IFES, and to pray for one another and the needs and opportunities for the coming year.

Pray for something new

Today there are more than 200 million students worldwide. There are countries, cities and forgotten corners of campuses, without anyone to introduce these students to Jesus.

Join thousands of people around the globe to pray for God to do something new in this generation of students on 19 October 2018.

How you can get involved:

Give to something new

Where are people praying?

Do something new

For World Student Day this year we’re inviting you to consider how you could be a pioneer on your campus. Where are there unreached students in your university? What new step could you take to reach the students around you?

This doesn’t have to be a big new initiative. It could be a deliberate decision to take ten minutes to pray for your classmates on your way to a lecture. It could be inviting your friend to look at the Bible with you.

We’d love to be praying for you as you try something new. Share what you’re doing and how other students can pray for you by sharing a prayer request.

“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:19
