During the worship hour, parents and other family members were invited to complete prayer cards. You may access the hundreds of prayers from family members for the Class of 2023 by clicking this link: Prayers for Class of 2023. I hope you will take a few minutes to read the prayers and reflect on the significance of our covenant, as members of the Samford faculty and staff, with these families.
The world is better because of the prayers for Samford, voiced each day by thousands of people, near and far.
