2022 Verse, Theme, and Prayer Requests

Every year, TCU’s leadership picks a Scripture verse and theme of the year. We also publish a list of prayer requests.

At TCU, we frequently call the verse and theme to mind, and we lift up these prayer needs throughout each week of the 2022 academic year (April 2022 through March 2023).

Would you pray with us? And for us?

Verse of the Year

“. . . so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God.” (Col 1:10 NIV)


Stand in the Gap: Christ’s Peace in Broken Places. (5) To the Fullness of Christ

Prayer Requests

As you can see in the headings below, our prayer requests are closely connected to our verse of the year. Some people like to focus on section 1 on Mondays, section 2 on Tuesdays, and so on.

However you pray whenever you pray, we appreciate your prayers for TCU.
