The 61st observance of the National Day of Prayer will be held across the country on Thursday, May 3. Locally, ministers have planned a National Day of Prayer (NDOP) rally at noon on Thursday, May 3, at the Delta County Courthouse.
The rally will be held on the front steps and lawn at 5th and Palmer.
The 2012 theme verse is Psalm 33:12, "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord." The mission of the NDOP is to mobilize prayer in America and to encourage repentance and righteousness in this culture. This event brings together many in the Christian church in unity for our country. It also emphasizes prayer for America and its leadership in the seven centers of power in government, military, media, business, education, church and family.
Community and business leaders, church members, home-school families and downtown leaders are welcome to attend this service of prayer for our nation and our leaders. Since this service will be held outdoors please plan for spring weather conditions.
Why do we pray? Our founding fathers called for prayer during the Constitutional Convention. In their eyes, our recently created nation and freedoms were a direct gift from God. During times of war presidents called this nation to pray. We are at war in Afghanistan and we are in a culture war of morality and values here in the United States. Why not pray since prayer definitely makes a difference. May many Christians come together across this nation and at the Delta County Courthouse on May 3, the National Day of Prayer.blog comments powered by Disqus
