Fifty-seven years ago, the United States Congress and President Truman passed a law which some cynics might say would never be passed today. They declared the first Thursday of May, every year, as "National Day of Prayer". This day is for people of all faiths to pray for the United States of America. Many see this as a day to celebrate the Nation's Christian heritage and foster unity within the Christian church. Prayor warriors gather to put aside political, denominational and personal differences to glorify God, to thank Him for His provision and to pray for their Country. It is a time to recognize the One who is the Almighty and the King of Kings and to worship at His feet, recognizing that He alone is in control.
This Thursday is also a time to pray for each other, recognizing that prayer is our link with our Creator and He desires not only to hear what is on our hearts but that we do care for our fellow man. It is a time to stand in the gap for our loved ones and strangers, to lift those that need to be drawn closer to the Throne and take our supplications and theirs to Giver of Life.
For the next few days, we invite all of you to share your prayer needs and requests with us (in the comment section below) and we will pray with and for you.
Jesus has promised, " Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven." (Matthew 18:19).
God bless you as you take time to seek His face.
