Via De Cristo of Colorado
Prayer Vigil Reminder and Information Sheet

Name:                                    Weekend: 
Prayer Date:                                      Prayer Time:
Because praying for an hour (or more) for many may seem like a monumental task, we have compiled some suggestions on how you might make this time of prayer more meaningful for you and for those on the weekend. Remember these are just suggestions.

 In selecting a time, make it a time you can truly devote to the Lord.
Pick a place where you can be quiet.   Kneel or sit before the Lord.
Material you may want to have on hand:  Pilgrim List, Team List, your Bible, prayer book, a notebook or prayer journal, and a pen.

PRAY:  For the Lord’s presence. Quiet your heart, mind, body, and spirit.  For the Lord to take the cares and stress of the day from you.  For His anointing upon you as you pray.
