#PrayersOf begins: Pray online during General Convention

#PrayersOf begins: Pray online during General Convention

The #PrayersOf project, spearheaded by the Society of Saint John the Evangelist, has begun and is inviting prayers of life for the first day of General Convention (Thursday, June 25).

Anyone can submit prayers, through Twitter, Facebook and Instagram; it’s recommended to submit before 5:00 p.m. ET for the following day, as the prayers are curated and some will be incorporated into the next day’s liturgy at General Convention.

To submit a prayer: tweet or post on Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #prayersof and the hashtag for the day’s theme. For today, that is #prayersof #life (for this theme, consider beginning your prayer with the words “I love…”).

A schedule of the days’ prayer themes, plus resources and a live feed of the prayers being submitted, can be found at

The #prayersof project is also on Twitter and Facebook.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
