The theme for the National Day of Prayer 2016 is
Wake Up America
… emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to return to the God of our Fathers in reverence for His Holy Name.
The Scripture this year is Isaiah 58:1: “Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet.”
Thursday, May 5th, we will be hosting a National Day of Prayer gathering from 6:30 to 8:00 pm.
The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for our nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Since its inception, this day has continually united Americans from all socio-economic, political, and ethnic backgrounds in prayer while also encouraging personal repentance and righteousness in the culture. The National Day of Prayer belongs to all Americans and is a day that transcends differences, bringing together citizens to celebrate our most beloved freedom; the freedom to humbly come before God and seek His guidance in prayer.
