Opportunities (including in person, cyber and virtual) to join in prayer for the General Convention's opening day

OK, easy one first: If you will be in Sioux Falls tomorrow morning (Wednesday), Good Shepherd's 10 a.m. Holy Communion service will include intercession for the General Convention and for our South Dakota deputation in particular. The Prayers of the People always includes time for you to intercede silently or aloud as you are moved.

At 1 p.m. PST, there will be intercession for General Convention in a virtual chapel at Second Life, which can also be joined via live chat. You can get the details for both options here.
Twitter users have the on-going opportunity to share prayers via #pray4TEC.
Skype users have opportunities here.
Online prayer resources are updated frequently at Lent & Beyond.

In whatever time zone, media or other reality you find yourself, please keep up prayer for the General Convention between now and its close on Friday, July 17th. The Episcopal Church has set up a media hub here, which is getting good comments.
And of course the blogosphere will seek to interpret things as they unfold... a good onsite blogger is Baby Blue and if you like the hard and often technical unpacking of the politics and legalities of events, go to him (no, Sioux Falls residents, I don't mean Scott Hoy). And of course there is the gravitas of T19.
Keep praying. And please pray for all intercessors - the folks who are committed to prayer - they are among the devil's favorite targets for various forms of spiritual harassment.
