Dear Friends in Christ,
I invite you to join with me in nine days of prayer leading up to, and surrounding, Inauguration Day on Jan 20, 2021.
Each night, at 6 pm, starting on Thursday, January 14, one of our Regional Deans or our Cathedral Dean will lead us in prayers, following The Order for Worship for the Evening. I will lead the prayers on Wednesday, January 20.
The Zoom link and additional call in numbers may be found here.
Whenever we are confronted with moments of great import, we gather as the people of God to pray together. The fellowship and grounding we receive gives us strength to engage in a non-violent manner with critical events such as those arising last week.
This worship is my call, to all our members, to engage in the hallmark of our vocation as Christians: to be peacemakers, who engage one another across difference to create bonds of friendship and connection in the power of the Spirit.
Please join us as we pray for our nation.
Pray for guidance
O God, by whom the meek are guided in judgment, and light rises up in darkness for the godly: Grant us, in all our doubts and uncertainties, the grace to ask what you would have us to do, that the Spirit of wisdom may save us from all false choices, and that in your light we may see light, and in your straight path may not stumble; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (BCP 832)
