The Watch - Prayer Vigil
“Could you not keep awake one hour?”
“Then he came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and he said to Peter, ‘So, could you not stay awake with me one hour?’” Matthew 26:40
In Matthew, Jesus asked his disciples if they could stay awake with him just one hour; but they could not. Since that time, disciples have been trying to honor His request.
Here at St. John’s Cathedral, we will attempt to do our part by keeping watch and praying with Christians around the world from the end of Maundy Thursday service through Good Friday noonday service (Thursday 8:00 p.m. through noon Friday). We invite you to join in remembering our Lord’s passion by praying and keeping watch with Him for a 30-minute segment during our remembrance of that fateful night.
Because of the pandemic, this year we will be praying from home. Sign up here to participate in a 1/2 hour prayer vigil in your home.
