Last year we invited you to join us in a time of prayer and fasting on Good Friday. Then it was at the start of this pandemic. Now that a year has passed, we invite you to again join us in a prayer vigil on Good Friday from noon-6pm.
I am often struck by the repeated words of God spoken through prophet Amos to Israel (Amos 4:6-11). God recounted many things that he brought upon them including famine, drought, and pestilence. Five times in that passage we read “yet you did not return to me, declares the LORD.” Rightly understood, everything we face in this life is designed to draw us to our Lord, even the unique events of this past year. So, would you join us in asking that God use the events of this past year to shape us for His kingdom purposes in this coming year?
The sign up: We have broken this time period up in to 15-minute time slots. We ask that you consider signing up to pray during one or more of those slots. Someone will commit to pray during any slots not taken as a way to ensure that we offer up 6 continuous hours of prayer. Click the "Register Now" button to sign up. We will strive to update the list below with your signups each morning. We encourage you to connect with others signed up at the same time as you to pray together, either at the church, over the phone or via web conference.
If you sign up before noon on Thursday April 1st we can send to you a reminder of your time and a list of suggested prayer items. You may also desire to use the Guide to Prayer and Fasting provided last year by our denomination at this link.
Will you join me?
