PRAYER AND FASTING RESOURCES
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).
The whole world is in the throes of a coronavirus pandemic that is spreading death, illness, economic turmoil, unemployment, isolation, panic, and fear. In such desperate times, the people of God should humble themselves and pray to almighty God for His grace, mercy, and love to heal us, restore us, and relieve us from this crushing burden of disease.
In response to the ravages of this historic plague, the EPC, the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), and the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) have united for the first time in an historic, ecumenical event to pray for God’s mercy and healing.
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 goal is for all 550,000 members of these three churches to have the opportunity to participate. Since the announcement was made on March 31, the National Association of Evangelicals, the Christian Reformed Church in North America, the Christian and Missionary Alliance, ECO: A Covenant Order of Presbyterians, and others have joined in this emphasis. Together, more than one million Christians worldwide will join their hearts in prayer on Good Friday.
Three resources are provided below, though churches and individuals are free to use other materials that would be helpful. Let’s all humble our hearts and unite in prayer to God on Good Friday!
