National Day of Prayer

May 7, 2020

NDP 2020

In 1952, our nation’s leaders believed that praying was critical enough for Congress to pass a joint resolution to establish a National Day of Prayer annually. In 1988, the first Thursday in May was permanently designated as the annual National Day of Prayer.

What might happen if we prayed just a little more?

We can pray right where we are (in our hearts or out loud) as we go through the day.

  • For families and neighbors
  • For first responders and medical personnel
  • For educators and support staff
  • For employers and employees
  • For the church world wide
  • For government, the military, the media, etc. …

While there are lots of ways to pray, the most important thing is just to open our hearts to God and pray as the Holy Spirit leads. Let’s see what happens when God’s family turns to Him and prays for His kingdom to come and His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Here are several resources to help us pray:
