Prayer Day for Christian Education, September 11, 2016

The second Sunday in September is designated as a day of prayer for Christian education. The nurture of Christians of all ages in their faith is the responsibility of each congregation. Pray for your congregation’s Christian education program and for the personal growth in faith of each member.



Prayer Day for Church Development, September 18, 2016

The third Sunday in September is the prayer day for church development in the Northern Province. Pray for the new congregations established in our province in recent years as they develop their unity and mission. Support the ongoing development of these new ministries. Pray also for those congregations in the redevelopment process.


Prayer Day for the Church’s Ministry to Older Adults, September 25, 2016

The 2002 Synod reaffirmed the fourth Sunday in September as a time to recognize older generations and to pray for our mutual ministry. Each congregation can make ministry to and with older generations in their midst a special cause for prayer.

Moravian Daily Texts


Saturday, April 21 — Psalm 52
Leviticus 15:1–24; Mark 5:21–43

The snares of death encompassed me; I suffered distress and anguish. Then I called on the name of the Lord: ‘O Lord, I pray, save my life!’ Psalm 116:3,4

The disciples awoke Jesus and said to Him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. Mark 4:38–39 (NKJV)

Christ Jesus, how prone we are to worry. How we forget your words, “Fear not.” When our faith is diminished by fear, gently remind us to take refuge in you. “Saranam, Saranam, Saranam.” Amen.
