“Therefore, as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude.” – Colossians 2:6-7
Since 1952, the United States of America has observed annually the National Day of Prayer which was signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. This day is set aside for Americans to gather together all throughout our country to seek the Lord in fervent prayer, intercede for our leaders, and plead with God to heal our land.
As today is the National Day of Prayer, all across the Commonwealth there will be public gatherings at Court Houses, City Halls, and churches to pray for our nation. Members of The Family Foundation team will be at various locations throughout the state for this special day of prayer for America.
As we pray today for our federal government, state government, local government, military, media, business, education, and family, let us pray with bold confidence while remembering God’s promise in 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” Through prayer Americans today can go directly to the throne room of God with the assurance that He hears our prayers for our nation.
The theme for this year’s National Day of Prayer is “God’s people joining His angels in EXALTING Him as we pray – because HE HAS ESTABLISHED US in this nation and is working in the heavenlies to accomplish all that He has purposed for America.” May the people of God assemble today in great numbers petitioning the Lord to bless our nation.
LET US PRAY…
Father, thank You for establishing us in this great nation where we can freely and publicly worship You. Lord, please heal our nation so that we may be a people who bring honor to Your Name. Father, may America truly be a shining city on a hill in our lost and dark world. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
