Annual Day of Prayer, March 14, 2018


Synod has designated the second Wednesday of March (March 14, 2018) as the Annual Day of Prayer. All CRC congregations are requested to assemble to ask for God’s blessing upon the world, our nations, crops and industry, and the church worldwide. Councils are reminded that if it is judged that the observance of the Annual Day of Prayer can be more meaningfully observed in conjunction with the National Day of Prayer (U.S.), they have the right to change the date of service accordingly (Acts of Synod 1996, p. 578). The National Day of Prayer (U.S.) is Thursday, May 3, 2018.
