National Day of Prayer

Make Time to Pray on Thursday,
May 4, 2011

Amazing things happen when we set aside just a few minutes each day to Pray.


"Let our hearts be stout, to wait out the long travail, to bear sorrows that may come, to impart our courage unto our sons wheresoever they may be. And, O Lord, give us faith. Give us faith in Thee."
- President Franklin D. Roosevelt, June 1944

"it is the duty of nations as well as men, to owe their dependence upon the overruling power of God."
 - President Abraham Lincoln, 1863

What is the National Day of Prayer:  The National Day of Prayer is a day that is set aside each year, recently the first Thursday of May, to pray for our nation, the United States of America.  For every man, woman and child to set aside even 5 minutes to seek God's favor on our nation.  To pray for wisdom & moral character for those in leadership from the President all the way down to local officials, teachers & even our local road crews.  It's a day that we as Americans can & should set aside time to seek God's wisdom & God's truth as we face the trials of daily living.  It's a day to find out what God believes is right and wrong - not man's ideas.

The National Day of Prayer is not a political event.  Our government has designated this day as belonging to all Americans, regardless of creed or religious affiliation.  Each one of us can observe this day as your or my conscience dictates.

The History of Prayer in the United States:  From the beginning, America's leaders have lead its citizenry in prayer, by calling on God in tough or troubling times. From the Pilgrims, to the founding fathers as they struggled to build a new government & constitution, to Abraham Lincoln in the days of Civil War to FDR during World War II, to today as we struggle against people & powers who desire to corrupt and ultimately destroy the American way of life - the American Dream.

In 1952, Congress passed a bill, signed by President Harry Truman establishing a National Day of Prayer.  In 1988, President Ronald Reagan, amended the law designating the first Thursday in May of each year as the National Day of Prayer. Each year, the President issues a proclamation in support of this significant day.

Why we should pray:  Simply put, prayer changes things.  Prayer influences that part of our individual lives as well as society around us as we set our hearts & minds on what God would have us do for His honor & glory, not ours. As a challenge, pray earnestly for God's grace & guidance in your life every day for a month and see the difference.  You'll be astounded.

What to pray for:  This year, we are all being encouraged to take seven minutes to pray for the Seven Centers of Power - pray one minute each for these 7 centers of influence: government, military, media (television, radio, print, internet), business, education, church and family. Each of these Centers is incredibly important.  Pray for renewal in all of our hearts and that true repentance would come to America.  The Bible, in 1 Timothy 2:1-2, specifically calls us to pray for our government leaders, "and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty."  Isn't that a good reason?

Who to pray for:  Here's a simple list of who we should be praying for - by name.
