Prayer Vigil

Join us on Memorial Day Weekend as The Florida-Georgia District holds a virtual prayer vigil to give thanks and pray for our district and country. Our prayers will petition God’s ongoing guidance and strength during the uncertain times we are currently experiencing.

It will begin at midnight on May 23rd and conclude at 11:59 pm on May 25th.

We will focus our prayers on our churches and schools, for worship in our churches and for pastors and leaders who are adjusting to the new normal. We will also pray for our country, the states and for military personnel who have died while serving.

We will be asking for people to sign up to pray for 30 minutes. Prayer topics and scripture verses will be provided.

We will focus our prayers on the following topics each day:

Saturday – Church and School Ministries

Sunday – Worship, Pastors and Leaders as they lead during this new normal

Monday – Country and states, and honoring the military personnel who have died while serving
