2021 Day of Prayer



The ACSI Day of Prayer is an annual event that advances Christ-centered education by advocating through prayer. There is no doubt that this school year has been unique and often challenging, but God desires for His people to flourish despite the surrounding circumstances. Therefore, we encourage you to join ACSI as we unite globally to pray for Christ-centered education on Tuesday, February 23, 2021.

2021 Day of Prayer Theme: Flourish

Several times throughout the Bible, the concept of “flourish” predominantly refers to those who seek God in all His ways. Since ACSI desires to point students to Jesus Christ, we took a few years to explore what helps Christian schools to flourish. After building the Flourishing Schools Research, ACSI developed the Flourishing School Culture Model, which determined 5 domains where a Christian School can flourish. We will utilize these domains as our prayer guide this year.

Despite the challenges that faced the first church, we are reminded in Acts 12 that “the word of God continued to spread and flourish.” Today, we may be facing different obstacles, but the same God that helped generations of believers is the same God that will help you, your students and your school community today.

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots to the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” Jeremiah 17:7-8
