Dulles Airport Chapel Prayers

Are you a nervous flier, one with white-knuckle grips on the seat rest during takeoff? Are you also religious?

Then the Dulles Airport Chapel is for you.

Honoring all faith traditions and open 24 hours a day for meditation, its the perfect place to reconnect with your gods before a long flight. It also has prayer sessions on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for those in need of leader in religious rites.

Being an atheist, I don’t frequent the chapel’s multiple services, but if I were a believer, I would be in there praying to make 26 hours of flights without delay or disaster.

What would you pray for?

    Apparently, you are completely unaware of this, but most, if not all, airports have a chapel. Believe it or not, there are times of need at airports, not just for praying for a safe flight.

    I’m aware that many airports have a place to worship, not always called a “chapel” and I’ve used a few to find a quiet moment to mentally prep for a flight without praying to a god.

    I just thought it would be interesting to point out the Dulles Airport place of worship for those that might not know & to see what others might use it for.

    Looking at the sign again, I just noticed that Catholics get Saturday night while Protestants get Sunday morning. I wonder if there was a fight for the Sunday morning service or they flipped coins?

    I took a few photos of the Dulles Chapel some years ago as part of my Airport Chapels Project. The pastor, a fellow Baptist, was really nice about it and let me snap away while there was no one to disturb at the time.

    Wow! I really like that HKG prayer room. Very serene.
