Solemn Assembly Called for May 15th! Prayer Vigils will precede it

In America a call has been sounded for ten days of prayer and fasting from the National Day of Prayer on May 5th to Pentecost Sunday, May 15th.

And here in Connecticut we are in a season of great cultural upheaval and redefinition of society’s foundation. It is rightly fitting for the Body of Christ in Connecticut to join together to seek the face of God in repentance and prayer. The prophet Joel enjoins us at such times to”blow the trumpet in Zion, declare a fast and call a solemn assembly.”

A representative group of ministers is echoing the Spirit’s call for God’s people to meet in such assembly here in Connecticut, on May 15 at First Cathedral in Bloomfield beginning at 4:00 PM. (Click here for directions to First Cathedral.)

Please forward and publicize this call to your own church leadership and your personal e-mail lists. We also encourage you to enlist prayer for Connecticut around the world through your various contacts and networks, especially in view of the current, dire situation in our Legislature.

Leading up to the Solemn Assembly will be a number of 24-Hour Prayer Vigils for our State, beginning on Friday, April 22nd at 6:30 p.m. and running until 6:30 p.m., Saturday, April 23rd. Find the host location nearest you, and make plans to attend. (For the benefit of hosting churches, please advise them if you are coming.) Come and be prepared to pray concerning important issues facing us such as marriage,corruption in government, murder and violence, apostasy, problems in our schools and seminaries, racism, division, and the unity of Churches.
