Prayer Vigil for the Times

Join us in daily prayer as we navigate these unprecedented and extraordinary times.

Life as we know it has changed because of the Coronavirus pandemic. A number of persons have died, and thousands are infected globally. In the face of this pandemic, the uncertainty of what each day holds can cause us to be anxious and worried. In these extraordinary times we must hold fast to that which tethers us: prayer. Prayer is our lifeline to the One who cares for us. And through prayer we are reminded that we are never alone, for “even though we walk through the valley of the shadows” of a pandemic and even death, we need not fear, for the Lord is with us.

So in these extraordinary times, we are inviting our members, online worshipers, friends, visitors, and whosoever will to pray throughout the days and weeks to come, calling upon the Lord, who is faithful and keeps promises.

The times of prayer each day are:
6:00 to 7:00 am
12:00 to 1:00 pm
7:00 to 8:00 pm

We invite you to select an hour, and pray at different times throughout that hour, or for the entire hour.

SUNDAY
Pray for teachers and students, who are teaching and learning from home

MONDAY
Pray for missionaries abroad, who are experiencing isolation since global travel has been severely restricted

TUESDAY
Pray for those affected with the Coronavirus, those who are quarantined, health care workers, first responders, and family members who are caregivers

WEDNESDAY
Pray for Scientists, Biologists, and Researchers who are working on finding a cure/vaccine for this virus / We also encourage persons who are able to combine fasting with prayer each Wednesday, starting today, during this pandemic. You can fast from a meal, say breakfast or lunch, or you can let your fast be just having one meal for the day, say supper/dinner.

THURSDAY
Pray for hospital administrators, rehabs and nursing homes administrators

FRIDAY
Pray for the government of our country and the world – at large, and the global economy

SATURDAY
Pray for small business owners, those who are unable to work, and those who work in stores that provide food and supplies

We will follow this pattern each week, until the pandemic is over.

As we go into prayer, let us remember that God is more ready to hear than we are to pray, and that the Lord is better at hearing than we are at praying. 2 Chronicles 7:14 tells us, “If my people who are called by name will pray and seek my face … then I will hear from heaven and heal their land.”

We are living in extraordinary times, but we serve an extraordinary God.
