KNOXVILLE — Harvesters will be hosting a night of prayer tomorrow evening beginning at 10:30 p.m. lasting till 6 a.m. the next morning. The event, Ignite, will take place in the Philip-Whelshimer gymnasium.
Ignite is an annual event, with this years theme centering around Jesus in the Garden.
Bekah Oaks, co-president of Harvesters, said the Harvesters leadership team especially wanted to make Ignite a focus this year because it fits so well with the current chapel theme: Lord, teach me to pray.
“I think Ignite fits perfectly with our theme of ‘Jesus teach us to pray,’ because it is a great way to put tire to road, so to speak,” Oaks said. “We have been hearing about the different ways Jesus prayed all year long, and now is a great opportunity for students, faculty, and staff alike to actually partake in those prayers.”
Each half hour will be focused on a different aspect/way to pray. There will be different prayer stations and worship taking place throughout the night.
Students are welcome to come and go as they please until 1 a.m. curfew. At that point people need to decide if they want to stay for the rest of the night or if they want to leave.
The event offers a variety of ways to pray, interacting with different learning types and personalities.
