Know a friend who may need help? The phone number for the Grad Resources Crisis Line for classmates who may be at the edge: 1.800.GRAD.HLP (800.472.3457). This is a free service and does not assume the student calling in is a believer.
It is not too late to join a GCF small group! Check out this list for a small group near you.
Pray for small groups that they would grow to be communities of encouragement and accountability.
Pray for GCF that we can better serve and love the graduate student community at MIT.
Pray for those suffering from mental health issues - pray that God's light would reach them.
