National Day of Prayer--World Day of Prayer.

The National Day of Prayer, World Day of Prayer is celebrated the first Thursday in May.

In the United States, The National Day of Prayer (NDP) is an annual event established by an act of Congress which encourages Americans to pray for our nation, its people and its leaders.The NDP Task Force concentrates on the need to pray for those in leadership on all levels of national, church, and educational areas of influence.

The theme for this year’s National Day of Prayer is “Prayer! America’s Strength and Shield” and is based on the Bible verse Psalm 28:7, which states:
“The Lord is my strength and shield; my heart trusts in Him and I am helped.”

And Pray for Peace on Earth!

"Let There Be Peace on Earth,
And Let it Begin with Me."

God Bless You All!

That's really beautiful! Thank you for this message I needed it. We celebrated Ascension Day yesterday and I went to church. I hope our prayers will be answered. They will be heard, that's certain.

All the churches in town got together in the park to celebrate and pray together. We even had a Christian singer come up. It was quite the day.

Hi Grandy,

Last year, they did the same here, but this year, not a peep from anyone about it. It was dissapointing, to say the least.Thank you for commenting.

Blessings,

Renie
