New weekly prayer service begins Aug. 31

“Called Together: The Prayers of the People” is a new weekly prayer service at Wake Forest that will begin Aug. 31.

The series of services, which will be held at noon on Wednesdays in Davis Chapel, was organized by the Office the Chaplain and Religious Life.  The services will last minutes.

Each week will be led by a particular faith tradition.  All faith practices are welcomed.  And, all people are welcome to participate in every service.

This is the initial schedule for the prayer service:

–Aug. 31, Protestant Evangelical Tradition
–Sept. 7, Catholic Tradition
–Sept. 14, Black Church Tradition
–Sept. 21, Global Prayers
–Sept. 28, Interfaith Array
–Oct. 5, Muslim Tradition
–Oct. 12, Jewish Tradition

The series of services is an effort to address the crises and traumatic events that happen, but receive varying amounts of attention and response, according to the Associate Chaplain K. Monet Rice-Jalloh.

“Each week, prayers will be lifted for global issues that are brought to our attention that need both prayers and people motivated by prayer to affect change,” she said.
