The National Day of
Prayer is an annual observance for people of all faiths. President Harry Truman
established the day as a national event in 1952. In 1988, President Ronald
Reagan signed a resolution designating the first Thursday in May as the
National Day of Prayer. This year's theme is:
For Your Great
Name's Sake Hear Us... Forgive Us... Heal Us!
Prayer is the means God
has ordained for some things to happen. Prayer moves the hand that moves the
world. God knows the future and is already in control of everything.
How much more do we
need to pray? God is waiting to hear the unified cry of "His" family (Rev 5:9). Prayer is the hand that moves the heart of God.
God is powerful, all knowing and all loving.
We gather at the CRNDP
to give God his desire, a unified cry of His many membered family, to heal our
land (2 Chronicles 7:14) We come as those the Father seeketh,
true worshipers in spirit and truth (John 4:23), sponsored by a capital region
coalition of churches and ministries. We assemble with the promise as we focus
our mind and heart on "Him"; He will come and fight for us.(Deuteronomy 20:4) Amen.
Your presence on the
West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol is reinforcement.
