Healing Our City
Join us daily in praying for our city?
As we moved toward the trial of Derek Chauvin, the primary defendant in the killing of George Floyd, we were acutely aware of the different ways this trial pulls on our community. Some were grieving, some are hoping, and many are anxious about what is to come.
CLNE had the honor of working with some incredible leaders in our community to create a daily space for prayer as we all walk through this together. On March 9th, at 8:00 AM, we launched the Healing Our City Virtual Prayer Tent.
This daily 20-minute experience convened at 8 AM Central Time on both Zoom and Facebook Live. It will include a reflection by a different religious/spiritual leader each day and, following the reflection, participants will be invited into a period of 8 minutes and 46 seconds of silent prayer/meditation.
Our prayer tent is expansive and inclusive, including people of all faiths, denominations, races, and orientations. Because it is a virtual prayer tent, we include people from all over this nation and world. People who, like us, hunger for God’s healing in our city and everywhere. From this tent we will go out into our neighborhoods and into the daily lives of people who long for welcome, safety, and belonging. Let us walk boldly into the unpredictability of this human trial, walking in faith, holding hands, praying in solidarity and unity of spirit. Join us.
The virtual prayer tent started a sabbatical on May 26, 2021 and we continue to prayerfully consider how this movement can contribute to our communities now. You can join us on the Healing Our City Facebook page, watch recordings of past sessions on the YouTube page, and consider joining us for Come Together for Racial Justice.
From this tent we go out into our neighborhoods and into the daily lives of people who long for welcome, safety, and belonging. Let us walk boldly into the unpredictability of this human trial, walking in faith, holding hands, praying in solidarity and unity of spirit.
