A Call to Courage Prayer Vigil

May 6 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

This past year–and these past few weeks–has been particularly trying, with our country and our state reeling from the impact of several lethal pandemics at once. Lately, the emotional swing from the hopeful news
of verdict in the trial of the murder of George Floyd to the devastating news of the killings of Ma’ Khia Bryant and Andrew Brown, Jr, has been nearly unbearable. Sadly, these murders are representative of the violent racial injustices that plague our nation. Too often we must ask, “How long will it be until justice rolls down like a mighty stream?”

To support you as you seek answers to that question while providing spiritual guidance and pastoral care for your congregations and communities, the North Carolina Council of Churches invites you to a Midday Prayer Vigil for Courage during the National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 6.

Click here to register.

The vigil will include prayers for you and the communities you serve, special music and an inspirational message.

As Bishop Michael Curry said during an evening prayer service after verdict in Minneapolis, the struggle must go on, “until no human child of God is treated as anything less.” May this midday prayer service grant you courage for that struggle.
