On April 11, 2017, Jehovah’s Witnesses will celebrate their annual Memorial in Kingdom Halls worldwide.
“We want to pray for Jehovah’s Witnesses, that their eyes might be opened and come to the Lord Jesus this Memorial. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective (James 5:16). As some may know, the majority of Jehovah’s Witnesses refuse to partake of the bread and wine.
However, Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no eternal life in you.” (John 6:53) Let’s also pray for those who have left and are seeking for the Lord still! Pray that they will come to know and experience God’s grace and love and mercy and come to Christ. Such a hard and long road, with all the WT teachings so ingrained.
Please spread the word about this event! We will begin our prayers on April 11th at 3 pm Mountain time and will continue until the Memorial is over.”

Social media has allowed former Jehovah’s Witnesses to connect with one another in discussion and sharing of information necessary to overcome the negative effects of the Watchtower religion. The shunned have lost family and friends and made new ones through social media like our Meetup and Facebook groups. Whenever the topic of social media comes up with a complaint, I rush in to defend it because I’ve witnessed too much love there. And this call to worldwide prayer is an example of that.
Please remember those in attendance at the Memorial this April 11 and also those struggling in their absence from it. Pray with us. If you would like to make it known on Facebook that you are praying with us, we invite you to click on this link Prayer for JW this Memorial Season and mark yourself as “going.”
