“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).

On Good Friday (April 10), the EPC, the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), and the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) were joined by the National Association of Evangelicals, the Christian Reformed Church in North America, the Christian and Missionary Alliance, ECO: A Covenant Order of Presbyterians, and the Converge network for an historic, ecumenical Call to Prayer and Fasting.

The Call: For all believers in Christ in the EPC, PCA, and ACNA to set aside Good Friday, April 10, as a day of prayer and fasting to cry out for God’s help in addition to a day of worship.

The resources provided below were made available for this historic day of prayer. They are not specific to Good Friday, so they can be used at any time to pray for God’s mercy and healing.
