hosted by Collegiate Abbey


We invite you to join us on Wednesday, August 11, at 7 a.m. for this virtual prayer gathering we pray through this new school year.

This event will be in-person and online. Our time will feature three, guided prayer times that will be introduced and led by leaders from the university and city. 

The deadline to register for the in-person event is August 6th. Parking is available at the Culinary Institute. 

It will be a brief but important time for us to come together to seek God as we begin this semester. 

If you would like to sign up for the live event, you can register via the button below. You can also help multiply the number of people praying by sharing the live link.

James 5:16b - “The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.”

If you are unable to join us, the recording will be available for viewing after the event.

Would you please consider sharing this prayer event with your friends, your colleagues, your churches, UT alumnus, and anyone else who loves and cares for our university and our Lord?

Thank you, may God bless, and Go Big Orange!

"In the midst of the busyness of preparing for a new academic year,

I am so thankful that Collegiate Abbey provided time to pause and offer our labors and those with whom and for whom we serve to the Lord."

- Shawn Slate, Pastor Redeemer Knoxville

"The prayer breakfast last year was deeply encouraging. To be able to start the day with prayer for faculty, staff and campus units—serves as a reminder and recognition that the work we do matters and is impactful."
