I am praying to You because I know You will answer, O God. Bend down and listen as I pray. – Psalm. 17:6
Going back to school this year looks and feels very different than any previous year: virtual, in-person, hybrid, home. There is anxiety, fear, frustration mixed with excitement and courage.
Come and pray for the emotional, mental, physical, relational and spiritual wellbeing of youth, teachers and families in the return-to-school.
You are invited to an interactive prayer journey through Prayer Stations with Scripture and instructions to guide your prayers and interactions. Everything you need will be provided for you in individual packages, including some take-away gifts to help you continue your prayers after you leave.
The Prayer Vigil will take place rain-or-shine in the Pavilion. Please dress according to the weather conditions.
