Good Friday Prayer Vigil
This event is a wonderful way to take time out of your busy schedule to spend a few moments in prayer and quiet contemplation during the St. Paul Prayer Vigil. We all know the demands and expectations placed upon us these days, and how often it seems that there are never enough hours in the day to do what we feel needs to be done or accomplished. Yet, we also heed the words of Jesus to his disciples the night he was betrayed – “Stay awake and pray that you may not come into the time of trial; the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” As it was for the disciples that night, it is difficult to let everything else go and give our full attention to what our Lord Jesus did for us as he went to the cross and rose from the dead.
May you all be ambassadors of prayer for the rest of our congregation. Perhaps through your witness many others will also consider time for prayer. We are stronger people and thus a stronger congregation when we know to whom we need to go for all our personal and congregational needs and help. Thank you for praying!
