Prayer Wall

Prayer Wall Hut
Prayer Wall Hut, Church of Christ Congregational UCC

During this season of Lent, the Church of Christ Congregational will be putting together a prayer wall as a place that all are invited to come to God in prayer again and again, weaving your prayers in with those of our larger community. Woven together, our prayers form the shape of an ampersand, an ancient symbol that, used here, represents God’s holy “and.” When we feel helpless and hopeless, God’s holy “and” encourages us to lift our weary eyes to search for more. Within the ampersand, our prayers are held together and transformed into beauty.

How to take part: The prayer wall is located on the “muffin hut” which is the gazebo type structure to the right of the church.  On a prayer strip (provided at the prayer wall and also at the Church office and Goshen Community Care office), write a word or phrase to represent your prayer to God. Then weave it inside the ampersand shape, adding it to the prayers of our larger community.  We invite you to offer as many prayers as you need, returning to this wall as often as possible.

For Chatter: This Lent, the Church of Christ Congregational UCC is inviting you to come to God in prayer again and again, weaving your prayers in with those of our larger community.
