In the midst of this COVID-19 pandemic, we sense that God is calling us to prayer and to not live in fear and anxiety in the coming days and months. Paul reminds us in Colossians 1:27 that "Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory." Let us take heart and cling to His promises in the face of fear and uncertainty, and anchor our souls in the promises found throughout scripture. His love never fails. His goodness and mercy are running after us.

With this is mind, we have set up a 24/7 prayer sign up online. All are invited to join us and participate during this time, no matter where you live or if you attend another church. This is not limited to members of Washington UMC. We want to surround the clock with prayer, so please sign up for a slot (or multiple slots) throughout the week to pray. You can pray alone, with your family, friends, a neighbor, on the phone with others, small groups, as you walk, cook, clean, paint. It doesn’t matter, get creative, and give God no rest during this time of crisis. This is your hour, please use all of it to worship, pray, journal, meditate, petition, confess, sing, dance, whatever. We've put together some prayer resources for you to download here.
