ZOOM TIME OF PRAYER,
Thursday, October 1, Noon.
FR. DAVID’S BLOG OF 9/25/2020 — This past week has been devastating for this country. Last Friday evening Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. On Wednesday of this week a grand jury in Kentucky did not indict the police officers in the killing of Breonna Taylor in Louisville last March. The western states are still battling wildfires that has made breathable air hard to find and there another hurricane hit the Gulf Coast. More than 200,000 have lost their lives to the pandemic. Each day there is more deeply distressing news and many are questioning what will happen on election day on Tuesday, November 3.
I am convinced that we are not in this alone and the time we find ourselves in at the moment is an invitation for all of us to take a moment to quite ourselves and pray. Consider taking some time to be in the presence of God.
A small group of us have planned an interfaith Zoom time of prayer. This event is entitled, Prayer Changes Things and is scheduled to take place next Thursday, October 1 at 12:00 p.m.
The organizers of this event will briefly share the importance of corporate prayer at this time. Then we will invite folks who join the call to make a commitment to pray in solidarity with one another. Our faith informs us that prayer does change hearts and minds. Prayer is vitally essential at this critical time.
