Novena for Accountability, Transparency, and Healing

In this week’s prayer post, we are sharing a special novena being prayed for accountability, transparency, and healing within our Church. The novena originates from John Paul and Annie of Below, we share today’s prayers, Day 1 of the Novena. You can read each day’s prayers at the Pray More Novenas website here.

“Today we will be fed from the broken body of Christ and repent for the broken, sinful humanity of the Church.
Tomorrow, we lean in and begin to restore our Mother Church and our family. Tomorrow we invite and give full access to the Holy Spirit to bring forth light into the darkness and to move us ALL boldly into reform.” – from Abiding Together
