2014.04.17 Prayer Vigil

Thursday 17th Prayer Vigil

As we prepare for Good Friday we remember the words of Jesus to His Disciples as He went to pray in the garden.  40b …”Pray that you will not fall into temptation.” (Luke 22:40b)

 Here is Jesus in anguished prayer for what He is about to do.  Jesus goes back to His Disciples and sees they are asleep and says words that are just as relevant to us today.  40b“…Could you men not keep watch with me for one hour?” he asked Peter.  41a“Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation…” (Matthew 26:40b-41a)

On Thursday the 17th we have the opportunity to keep a prayer vigil, to pray for an hour or more as we keep watch with Jesus.  Merredin Church of Christ will be open from 7pm Thursday night to 6am Good Friday so people can come and pray for this Town, nation, world, leaders, ministries and for others.

Please commit to an hour, or more.  There is a sign up sheet on the Merredin Church of Christ web-site, here is the link: http://www.merredinchurchofchrist.org/prayer-vigil/?sheet_id=1.
