Cyber Security Center 4

City Transformation: Protecting our nation

  • Pray that God would gather to our city people with the expertise and integrity needed for the cyber security center to succeed.

Last winter, the Colorado legislature allocated funds to build a national cyber security center here in Colorado Springs and this spring, the effort’s leadership selected a location along Nevada Ave near UCCS for the center.  The Denver Post noted that Colorado Springs was the first city connected to the network that became the Internet, so we have been and continue to be leaders in this field.  This week we are praying for this new venture.

Homeless People 5

City Transformation: Coordination of Efforts

  • Pray for Holy Spirit empowered strategies and activities that will free and heal people from the conditions that often lead to long-term homelessness, and will give a hand up to people who find themselves in crisis situations and lose their homes.

We are praying this week for some of the most troubled and vulnerable people of our city. In April of each year, the winter shelters close up shop for the season, reducing the number of safe places for homeless people to sleep by over 200 beds.  At the same time, the population of homeless people in the Springs has increased over the last year. While the Springs Rescue Mission is working on expanding their capacity, over the summer there is an increased danger to people living on the streets, particularly women, because they cannot get indoors for the night.  One woman was recently pushed off of a bridge, then repeatedly raped for three days while she lay paralyzed from her injuries.

City Transformation: Ministry to Students

  • Pray that the Holy Spirit would move across the colleges and universities of our region, bringing salvation, healing and wholeness to the students who attend.
