Archbishop calls for a Day of Prayer and Fasting on August 4th for the Diocese of South Carolina.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Gospel:

Many of you have heard of the mixed decision by the South Carolina Supreme Court, ruling that most of the parishes in the Diocese of South Carolina may have to turn over their properties to the Episcopal Church. The legal process is still unfolding and I am asking you to join me in a day of prayer and fasting for the Diocese on this Friday, August 4.  Below is a note I just sent to the bishops of the Anglican Church in North America:  

Dear Brother Bishops,

I am calling for a Day of Prayer and Fasting for this Friday, August 4th, for the Diocese of South Carolina. Let us fast and intercede on behalf of:

* Bishop Mark Lawrence
* The Standing Committee
* The Clergy (and rectors)
* The vestries and congregations affected by this ruling
* The Legal team

Let us ask God for His blessing on all of them…

- For Wisdom from God (James 1:5)
- For Godly Counsel (Proverbs 15:22)
- For true Justice (Amos 5:24)
- For trust in the Lord (Proverbs 3:5,6)
- For God’s leadership in their next steps (Ps.32:8)
- For the right doors to be opened (Mt.7:7,8)
- For the public witness of the Gospel and the Glory of God (1 Cor.10:31; Col.3:17)
- For God’s peace in the storm (Phil.4:6,7)

Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek and you shall find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives, and the one who seeks, finds, and to the one who knocks, it will be opened. (Jesus in Mt.7:7,8)


In Christ’s Love,
