Good Friday Prayer Vigil

“Could you not stay awake with me one hour? “
-Matthew 26:40

On the night before his crucifixion, Jesus took his followers to the Garden of Gethsemane to pray.  They were overcome with weariness and could not stay awake to pray with him in his moment of need.  Shortly thereafter, the soldiers came to take him away.

This Holy Week, First Presbyterian Church is holding a Vigil of Unbroken Prayer in remembrance of all that Jesus suffered and gave in the 24 hours before his death.  We are inviting members and friends to devote a half hour to prayer throughout Good Friday by signing up for a time-slot on the chart which follows.  More than one person may sign up for each slot.  Our purpose is to provide an offering of unbroken prayer for Christ and the world this Good Friday.  Please sign up today!  Let us know if you plan to pray from home or will be coming to our Chapel to pray in person.

Jesus said, “The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”  Let us offer the strength of our prayers in remembrance of him this Good Friday.  Our Good Friday Communion Service will immediately follow the Prayer Vigil at 7:00 pm.
