Unity Prayer Watch
The Moravian Church has experienced spiritual renewal and strength through a covenant of prayer. In 1727, the church in Herrnhut, Germany covenanted for an “hourly intercession” which continued for one hundred years with great blessing to the entire Moravian Church. The “Prayer Watch” in which Moravians around the world participate was reestablished in 1957, the 500th anniversary of the Unitas Fratrum.
The Unity Synod of 2009 reaffirmed this covenant and added new provinces to the list reducing the number of days of responsibility of the Southern Province from previous years. The prayer watch means prayer is being offered somewhere in the Unity 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The church has gained a great deal of strength in good times and in times of difficulty through prayer.
The time assigned to Raleigh Moravian Church for 2017 is January 13, from midnight to 8:00 am. Ideally, at least one congregation member would volunteer for each half-hour time slot. Please note that you pray at home (or wherever you are); the church will be locked. Individuals may sign up here.
If people would like to pray during a time slot that someone else has already signed up for, they are welcome to do so; signing up is not necessary in this case.
Suggested prayer topics are provided. Here is a link to the 2017 Unity Prayer Watch Topics.
