Could you not keep watch with me one hour?Matthew 26:36-46
On the night before his death, Jesus prays in the garden with intense emotion, knowing what is about to happen. Finding the disciples asleep, he asks them, “Could you not keep watch with me one hour?”
Traditionally, we hold this prayer vigil in our sanctuary where one or more are present with Jesus from the end of the Maundy Thursday service until the next service on Good Friday. This year our vigil will not be in the sanctuary, but rather wherever we find ourselves amid this global pandemic.
There has never been a time quite like this in the history of the world. There is a time to be present with God. This is a time to pray for our own needs and the needs of the world. Our goal is to have at least one person praying anywhere in creation during each of the time slots. When choosing your time, please pick an empty time slot. Please invite your friends, families, and neighbors to join us.
Following the 7 PM Maundy Thursday worship stream, the prayer vigil begins at 8 PM and ends at Noon on Good Friday.
Please prayerfully consider signing up for this meaningful moment of quiet prayer and reflection.
