Episcopal bishops call for 'period of intense prayer' before Election Day

From Western Massachusetts-

The Rt. Rev. Douglas J. Fisher, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts, is among the state's Episcopal bishops calling for "a vigil period of intense prayer from noon on All Saints Sunday, Nov. 6 through noon on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 8."

The diocese has scheduled a prayer vigil Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. in the court yard of Christ Church Cathedral. Others are being planned, including in Worcester and in Pittsfield, and will be posted on the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts website.

"We must pray that all those elected on that day be moved, strengthened and guided by the Spirit, to lead us through fractious and dangerous times," the statement reads in part.
