Stand with Israel Prayer Vigil to be Held at Liberty University on Wednesday, October 25

Vigil for victims counters pro-terrorist demonstrations on other campuses

Washington, D.C.  –  Today, Concerned Women for America (CWA), the largest public policy women’s organization in the country, announced it is joining with Liberty University in holding a prayer vigil for Israel on campus Wednesday, October 25, at 6:00 p.m. that will focus attention on the suffering of the Jewish people and victims of the horrific terrorist attacks on October 7, 2023, at the hands of Hamas.

While colleges around the country continue to see pro-terrorist rallies and sympathies for the perpetrators of the war in the Middle East, the Liberty University prayer vigil will show support for Israel as it takes on the terrorists and moves to its multilateral operation to destroy Hamas.

Details of the event include:

Dr. Dondi Costin, President, Liberty University
Penny Nance, CEO and President, Concerned Women for America
Ryan Helfenbein, Liberty University’s Standing for Freedom Center
Britton Miller, Young Women for America Leader

What: Prayer Vigil for Israel

Where: Freedom Tower, Center of Campus, 1971 University Blvd., Lynchburg, Virginia

When: Wednesday, October 23, 6:00-7:00 p.m. EST

“There is no equivocation in this conflict. Israel was mercilessly attacked, and innocent men, women, and children were murdered, raped, and victimized,” said Penny Nance. “We stand with Israel and against the demonic forces that would try to destroy its people. We recognize the special covenant that God made with the Jewish people, and we are instructed in the Bible to pray for the peace of Jerusalem. We are fulfilling our calling by holding this important prayer event.”
