Synod 2023 Prayer Support

Preparations for Synod 2023 are already underway. In order to support the work of synod in prayer, there are a number of prayer initiatives leading up to, and during, Synod 2023.

40 Days of Prayer for Synod 2023 

All members of the CRCNA are invited to join others across North America in 40 days of prayer.

Each day, readers will receive a Bible text, a prayer, and some suggested questions for reflection or conversation. All of the prayers are intended to reflect the theme of Synod 2023: Longing to be Like Christ, which is based on Philippians 2:1-11, summarized by verse 5: “In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus.”

The 40 days of prayer will begin on April 30 and will conclude when Synod 2023 begins on June 8.  Here’s a Banner and a CRC Network article introducing the 40 Days of Prayer. You can sign up HERE to receive either a daily email or a weekly PDF.

Prayer Opportunities During Synod

During synod, an emphasis on prayer will continue with focused times of prayer by delegates and morning prayers with those who are interested. 

For those who’d like to pray but aren’t at synod, there’ll be opportunities to SIGN UP for half hour prayer time slots each day with a provided prayer guide. There’ll also be an opportunity for prayer each day on social media via Facebook.
