7 Day Emmaus Prayer Vigil

Dear Emmaus and Chrysalis friends,

We seek your prayers as the Emmaus Board faces decisions about the Men’s and Women’s weekends this fall. A suggested guideline for daily readings, reflections, and prayers during this time has been prepared and can be downloaded here: http://www.flywithchrist.org/wp-content/uploads/7-day-Emmaus-Prayer-Vigil.pdf.

We have also set up a prayer list on our website for the final three days of this period (August 5-7) to assure that this process is covered in prayer. Please sign up for one or more slots at http://www.flywithchrist.org/prayer_list/womens-walk-and-mens-vigil-for-fall-2020/. You are invited to fast as your health allows – perhaps a meal one day, or each day, or a day during the week, or sunrise to sunset. Fasting intensifies our prayers and intimacy with the Lord.

Thank you for joining with us as we seek discernment during this difficult time. Please email Barb Gallion at eld@flywithchrist.org with any word or direction you are sensing from God during this time of prayer. In addition to praying about this decision, please also keep each member of our community and the churches and families they represent in your prayers.

Thank you and DeColores,
Laurie Loveless, Emmaus Community Spiritual Director
Barb Gallion, Emmaus Community Lay Director
Gwen Harris-Montague, Emmaus Community Prayer Coordinator
