An Invitation From Fr. Alexis: Pray For America On August 29th!
Our country is in serious trouble today. In August I just turned 64 years old so I have been around a while and seen quite a lot and I can say for sure that this is the most dangerous time in our history as a country during my lifetime.
My wife and I and our five children and all of our grandchildren and our church family have been praying for weeks for the healing of our land and we want to join together with other Christians in this prayer.
For this reason I am planning an event which I call simply “Pray for America”and I am inviting our entire community to gather together to ask for God’s help in this crisis.
Second Chronicles chapter 7 verse 14 says “if my people who are called by my name humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways then I will hear from heaven and will be merciful to their sins and heal their land.”
Our land needs healing.
My goal for this event is to give all of us the opportunity to publicly express our love for our country and to join together in prayer for our country.
Please join me on Saturday, August 29 at 10 AM at the Marie Kanine plaza at the corner of Green Street and Main Street for a service of prayer for our country.
