Novenas are ancient public or private prayers that are repeated for nine days or weeks. In this election season, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry of the Episcopal Church has called on everyone to gather and together pray for our nation and the election. The Rev. Jay Sidebotham speaks on the initiative: “In this election season, we carry out an important ministry with our prayers, making the commitment through personal spiritual practice to be present to our nation in this critical time, asking for God’s grace for decisions made, thanking God for the grace that we can participate in this way in our common life, and trusting that grace will help us through. First, we pray. Then we vote.”
Please join us at 9PM-9:15PM each evening (Central time) for a Zoom call for us to pray together in English and in Spanish from October 27 through November 4. It is the same Zoom link for all sessions and is here:
Each evening we will watch a 1:55 minute video with Bishop Curry and then we will have one person read the daily prayer in English and one in Spanish.
We’ll be posting the daily prayers on my Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIN pages, and please share the Zoom link with all your friends!
If you’d like to watch the video with Bishop Curry in advance, it is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_a9835WYp4&feature=youtu.be
It is not necessary to RSVP for the session each evening, just dial in!!!
Let us all come together to celebrate our freedom to vote!
Blessings, my friend
