The 50 Days of Prayer
An invitation for you to dive deeper into prayer between Sundays this fall.
Three forms of prayer – FAITH5, Collatio, and Daily Examen – are outlined on the pages linked below and offered as possibilities for your prayer:
Collatio is an ancient method of reflection on Scripture prayerfully and devotionally.
Daily Examen is a way to reflect on and pray from the events and experiences of your day.
Bible Reading Suggestions
Two Bible readings from the list below are suggested for use each week during the 50 Days of Prayer.
Additional readings for your prayer and devotion can be selected from among the Sunday worship readings, or the daily readings available in each Friday’s News to Know email and posted each morning on the church’s Facebook page. Videos of the Spark Story Bible Readings are available on our 50 Days of Prayer YouTube Channel
