PRAY WITHOUT CEASING:
A CIRCLE OF PRAYER FOR THE CHURCH

A nationwide prayer vigil for the Episcopal Church and the 2003 General Convention will begin on July 30, 2002 - exactly one year before the convention opens in Minneapolis. The dioceses of the Episcopal Church are once again being invited to take responsibility for three separate days of prayer during the year.

As this rotating prayer vigil moves from diocese to diocese, and province to province, the effect will be like an ever widening circle of the Holy Spirit, surrounding our leaders. The prayer circle will repeat three times, moving throughout the Episcopal Church and returning to each diocese to draw more and more of God's people into a life of prayer. As we seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit for our bishops and deputies, may this circle continue to grow.

Everyone is invited to take part in some way, either by joining in an organized prayer vigil at a particular church, or by setting aside personal time to pray for the Episcopal Church on that day. As in the past, the purpose of the prayer vigil is to support our bishops and deputies in prayer, and to intercede for a convention which will be facing a number of crucial issues surrounding our common life and mission. We cannot expect every conflict to be immediately resolved, nor every answer to be revealed instantaneously. However, in major areas of disagreement we can expect God to show a way through the impasse and to make the mind of Christ known in our midst.

If you are able to coordinate the Prayer Vigil's movement through your diocese, please contact your diocesan representative or the AFP Office . We hope that every diocese will participate in this important ministry.
