VALLEY FORGE, PA (ABNS 3/20/20)—The members of the National Executive Council and the members of the Regional Executive Ministers Council issued a Call to Prayer on Friday, March 20, 2020.
The Call to Prayer is included below:
During this time of concern and uncertainty, the members of the National Executive Council and the members of the Regional Executive Ministers Council are calling American Baptists to a time of prayer for 21 days beginning on March 21, 2020 and ending on April 11, 2020. During this time we are asking for American Baptists to pray for the recovery and healing of persons effected by COVID-19.
We also invite you to share resources, prayers, litanies, poems, etc., by sending them to ABCUSA Director of Communication, Bridget Lipin at Bridget.Lipin@abc-usa.org.
Contributions will be posted at www.abc-usa.org/21daysofprayer.
Our goal is to harness the power of prayer during this global pandemic as well as deepen our individual and common spiritual lives as American Baptists. Our collected prayers and witness will remind our communities and neighbors that our faith will sustain us and give us hope.
As we always ask, please be respectful of one another as you share information.
Grace and Peace,
Members of the National Executive Council and the Regional Executive Ministers Council
