ORU Unveils New Prayer Room in Prayer Tower

Oral Roberts University opens a Prayer Room on Saturday, Feb. 14. The initiative, a student-led project, will provide a space dedicated to prayer 12 hours a day, 6 days a week.
“As the global prayer movement builds momentum, we are excited that the ORU family has the opportunity to be on the edge of this move of God with the Prayer Room concept,” said Clarence Boyd, dean of student development for campus ministry. “This will be a sacred place for prayer, emphasizing intimacy and communion with God, for the entire ORU community–faculty, staff, students, and alumni visiting campus.”
The renovated room embraces many styles of prayer. There is a large gathering area for corporate prayer, a partitioned area in the main room for small-group prayer, and four individual spaces for private prayer. The room includes a map of the world to foster a global perspective, and a large cross created by the ORU art department to remind participants of Christ’s sacrifice and to see the world through the cross.
A ceremony to dedicate the new Prayer Room will take place on 3 p.m. Feb. 14.
ORU is an interdenominational Christian liberal arts university, founded in 1963.
