Prayer for the Nation opportunities



“Light a Candle - Pray for the Nation – Vote”:
Join the Diocese of Indianapolis in a public witness of peace and prayer. Leaders have created signs that can be downloaded, printed locally, and placed in yards or windows. Churches and dioceses can also add their own logos. Then light a candle and place it in your window each evening. Signs available here.

Season of Prayer: From October 27 through November 4, Forward Movement Publications and The Episcopal Church’s Office of Government Relations are organizing a season of prayer (or a novena, a nine-day period of intentional prayer around a specific intention) for the election.

Nov. 1 National Prayer Service: Sunday, November 1 at 4pm EST, Presiding Bishop Curry will partner with Washington National Cathedral to host “Holding on to Hope: A National Service of Healing and Wholeness.” The live-streamed service is designed to help the nation to share in confession, grief and hope in light of COVID, racial reckoning and the historic election. Stream from The Episcopal Church’s FacebookYouTube, and home web page; can also be embedded on local sites.

Live Prayer Hotline: Personal prayer will be available in English and Spanish starting during the November 1 National Prayer Service, staffed by Episcopal clergy and chaplains, in partnership with the TryTank based at Virginia Theological Seminary and General Theological Seminary. The hotline will be open November 1 to November 5, from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm EST.
