On Thursday, May 1, 2014 across America the nation will gather to participate in National Day of Prayer (NDP). The theme is “One Voice, United in Prayer” and the chosen scripture will be Romans 15:6 “’So that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ” (National Day of Prayer).
On National Day of Prayer, we will have the opportunity to come together collectively as a nation interceding on behalf of others in prayer, corporately agreeing in obedience to God for someone’s deliverance regardless of what we don’t know about their situation. Believing, through prayer, God will change the course of events in spite of the situation.
With all that is evolving around us in the world today, we are in desperate need of prayer for our nation, world affairs on a national scale, conflict we continue to see met in the US and around the world with state and local governments, churches, leaders, ministers, and families only God can resolve through prayer.
On May 1, 2014 make a special commitment to intercede in special prayer for others. Honor the day the nation will exercise one of the most prized freedoms, rightfully, in worship, praise, and in prayer to God.
It is with sincere humility that I ask whatever you may be doing this day, please take a moment to be a part of and share in this important NDP event. Please mark your calendars, save the date, and prepare to participate in prayer.
In spite of religious backgrounds or personal preferences, let each of us come together in agreement and stand in unity to intercede for the nation with the ultimate goal to see God’s healing power manifest through the power of prayer that peace, unity, and deliverance may be found in the lives of many. Prayer changes things. It is communion and relationship with God. It is the key that unlocks our faith. With prayer, we can transform the world.
Be blessed! -JD
