Today at 12:00--A Call to Prayer led by the Crossroads District:
In the recent months and days we, as a nation, have experienced disaster and tragedy. Let us come together in a time of prayer for all the victims and their families who have suffered hurt and loss from the recent tragedy in Las Vegas, the hurricanes in Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico.
On Wednesday, October 4th at Noon, wherever you are, we ask that you join together with us in prayer. Let us offer up prayers as one voice - prayers of comfort and hope, for safety and peace throughout our nation and the world.
Please set aside time Wednesday 12 noon - 12:15 for prayer.
We are not meeting in a designated place, but please feel free to gather a group in your church, home, place of business, or wherever you choose.Let us as the Body of Christ cry out before God, Lord heal our land.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.

I have included a prayer you may choose to pray:
A PRAYER FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS
Almighty and gracious God,
Hear our prayer as we cry out for help. Comfort those who have suffered hurt and loss, strengthen and encourage all who have felt the pain and fear from the devastation around us.
Bless, O Lord, your people and fill our hearts with praise and thanksgiving for your continued protection and love that sustains us. Draw us together as one body so that we may go forward to bless one another offering help, hope and peace in Jesus’ name. Amen.
