Call for Prayer in Cape Cod Churches

by Michael Smith on March 12, 2015

Dear Brothers and Sisters,


On March 27th, Barnstable High School will have a psychic come to the school for a fund raiser. In the Old Testament Book of Leviticus, God condemns mediums and spiritists, saying that he had set apart the nation of Israel to be his own (Leviticus 20:26-27).  “Horoscopes, tarot cards, astrology, fortune tellers, palm readings, and séances are practices that are based on the concept that there are gods, spirits, or deceased loved ones that can give advice and guidance” (  Is it possible that spirits which are invited into the school will not depart at the conclusion of the psychic fund raiser?  We believe that this is possible, and we would like to gather to pray on Sunday, March 28th at 3 p.m. at the high school to ask God to cleanse the school and for his peace and wisdom to bless the teachers and students. 


Some of our public leaders have referred to America as a post Christian nation.  This may be true; a psychic would not be invited to a public school in a Christian nation.  It is time to pray with our Christian brothers and sisters across Christian denominational lines including Baptist, Catholic, Congregational, Episcopalian, Evangelical, Methodist, Episcopalian, Orthodox, Pentecostal, Presbyterian, etc. Would your church be interested in joining us in prayer at Barnstable High School at 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 29th to pray for an hour?  Would you like to add the name of your church below as we make a request to the principal for a prayer gathering at Barnstable High School?    


March 29th is Palm Sunday in the western Christian Churches; it is celebrated a week later for our friends in the Orthodox Church.  On Palm Sunday Jesus rode into Jerusalem as the triumphant king, fully God and fully man.  God had departed the temple before the Jewish exile to Babylon, and now God was returning to set things right.  Jesus cleared the temple and said, “My house will be called a house of prayer, but you are making it a den of robbers” (Matthew 22:13). Five days later, Jesus suffered, died and was buried.  In his sacrifice he has made redemption possible for all people and for creation itself.  He ascended into heaven by the power of the Holy Spirit, and he sits at the right hand of God the Father waiting to return to set things right for all time.  Palm Sunday is a perfect day for us to gather as a unified group of Christians to invite Jesus to come among us. Will you join us in prayer?


Sincerely Serving in Christian Ministry,
