Calvary Presbytery Day of Fasting and Prayer

On April 13th, teaching and ruling elders of Calvary Presbytery gathered in our sanctuary to fast and pray for our PCA churches, communities, and nation. It was a solemn time of adoration, confession, thanksgiving and supplication, pleading with our God for forgiveness. If you were not able to watch the session live today, we want to make the recording available to you now.

Call for Fast & Prayer

Recognizing the uniqueness of the current pandemic Dr. James F. Green, Moderator of Calvary Presbytery, calls for our congregations on April 13 to observe a Day of Fasting and Prayer

Stated Clerk Melton Ledford Duncan, Sr.

Let us mourn and confess the sins of our nation and particularly the church.  As Dr. Joseph Pipa has reminded us in his article below on fasting “We recognize that the current pandemic (among other things) is the hand of God’s judgment on the world and our nation. Peter reminds us that judgment begins with the household of God (1 Peter 4:17).”

Dr. Pipa also reminds us that in fasting we are to abstain from all food for a period of time in order to devote ourselves to the stated purposes.

We recommend that you begin your fast after your evening meal April 12 and end it after the noon meal, April 13. Some, because of health, will not be able to abstain totally, but all can deprive themselves to some extent for the agreed-on purposes: those who are unable to abstain totally should eat less than is their custom.

We also recommend that you take the money spared in not eating and give it to the Deacons of your congregation to be used in relief for those suffering economically.

If you have questions about fasting, giving, or this day of fasting and prayer talk to your pastor.
