GATHERING FOR PRAYER
From our leadership: “This event will serve two purposes… [in central Tennessee]: the first is to pray for what is just and right in our community and in the world around us; the second is to unite us as a common body of Christians in middle Tennessee”. As priest-in-charge, the first thing to call to pray for is the Great Commission: the actual sharing, as Jesus, first in word, then in deed, of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to our families and neighbors and to the ends of the earth. That is the beginning of what is just and right by God. Secondly, let us pray that our community, state, and nation will be led by the Holy Spirit to wise decisions and charity graciously applied for the common welfare. I propose a voluntary gathering at the close of day, 5:00 o’clock, for thirty minutes incorporating both silent and audible prayers.” –The Rev’d Jess Reeves

Christ Church Cathedral
Nashville, TN 37203
Christ Church Cathedral will join its fellow parishes in the Diocese of Tennessee in leading A DAY OF PRAYER, as part of a Diocesan-wide Prayer Vigil on October 27. This powerful act of corporate prayer will serve to unite us as a common body of Christians in middle Tennessee as we pray for what is just and right in our community and in the world around us. A Day of Prayer will also celebrate the diverse ways we as Christians can choose to “pray for our needs and those of others,” by offering a time to pray silently or aloud, in solitude or in communion with friends, family, and neighbors. Plans at the Cathedral include:
• CHAPEL PRAYER – The day will begin at 7:15 a.m. with a reading of Morning Prayer in the Chapel and conclude with Evening Prayer at 4:30 p.m. At every hour throughout the day, a period of quiet prayer in the Chapel will begin, during which time intentions from the congregation and the community will be read.
• PRAYER WALL – A prayer wall will be set up outside the Cathedral on Broadway from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will grow throughout the day with handwritten intentions, flowers, and pictures, representing the silent prayers of those who have visited.
