Madison City Interfaith Day of Prayer debuts Saturday at 10 a.m. at City Hall

MADISON – The Madison City Interfaith Day of Prayer has been designated as an official city observance each year on the third Saturday in November. This year, the day of prayer will be observed on Saturday, Nov. 18 at 10 a.m. at Madison City Hall.

The designation was adopted by a proclamation from Madison City Council at this week’s meeting.

Madison Interfaith Council is hosting the gathering. “This is an event that we hope will promote harmony among the diverse faiths in our community. We are still accepting sign-ups for faith representatives wishing to pray at the event,” Charity Stratton said.

Stratton serves as Secretary for Madison Interfaith Council, along with working as Communication Director of the Madison Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and as Specialist for the JustServe organization (justserve.org).

On Nov. 18 from 10 to 11 a.m., individuals will gather for the Madison City Interfaith Day of Prayer at the flag pole near the front entrance of Madison City Hall, 100 Hughes Road.

Members of all faiths are welcome. A time of prayer will be held “where we can lift up our city,” according to Madison Interfaith Council.

Anyone who plans to pray at the event needs to fill out a “Participation Request” form. This form asks for contact information, the church or faith community that the individual is representing and the title (for responsibility or leadership) that the person holds in that church.

To sign up for prayer at the event, complete a Google form or visit http://forms.gle/PakggZenCdqYwYhF6.

Each person who prays will have three minutes maximum, without public commentary and given in a spirit of unity and harmony.

Madison Interfaith Council is a group of local faith representatives who meet regularly to collaborate on ways to provide compassionate humanitarian service to Madison and the surrounding area. The council is a collaborative body of clergy and pastor representatives who identify, discuss and provide compassionate, humanitarian service to people in Madison, regardless of religion, nationality, race or creed.

Representatives for Madison Interfaith Council will use their unique perspectives to identify and discuss the needs of not only the people that they serve in their church, but in the entire community, Stratton said.

If requested, individuals at the gathering on Nov. 18 can receive material from Madison Interfaith Council that explains the objectives of the group and describes the service projects that members have completed thus far.
