This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. – 1 John 5:14
Christ Church Cathedral will join its fellow parishes in the Diocese of Tennessee in leading A Day of Prayer, as part of a Diocesan-wide Prayer Vigil on October 27. This powerful act of corporate prayer will serve to unite us as a common body of Christians in middle Tennessee as we pray for what is just and right in our community and in the world around us.
A Day of Prayer will also celebrate the diverse ways we as Christians can choose to “pray for our needs and those of others,” by offering a time to pray silently or aloud, in solitude or in communion with friends, family, and neighbors.
Plans at the Cathedral include:
Chapel Prayer - The day will begin at 7:15 a.m. with a reading of Morning Prayer in the Chapel and conclude with Evening Prayer at 4:30 p.m. At every hour throughout the day, a period of quiet prayer in the Chapel will begin, during which time intentions from the congregation and the community will be read.
Prayer Wall - A prayer wall will be set up outside the Cathedral on Broadway from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will grow throughout the day with handwritten intentions, flowers, and pictures, representing the silent prayers of those who have visited.
