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:
This year the Capital
Region National Day of Prayer (CRNDP) commemoration took take place on May 2,
2019 on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol.
2019 Theme: "Love
CRNDP 2019 was a day like none
other. Learning and Discerning set this day apart from previous gatherings of
this fashion. God divinely orchestrated the ministry flow of the day in a way
that displayed His sovereignty, wisdom and power to captivate our attention.
This was to bring us (collectively/corporately) to a place of learning and
discerning the prophetic symbolism and significance of what God did in our
midst - in order to make strategic future applications. The testimonies are
overwhelming of God's manifested and abiding presence with us in every wave of
worship and prayer:
- First Wave: Intercessors
covering the grounds of the West Lawn of the Capitol in
- Second Wave:
Multi-national and denominational minister Pre-gathering of united fervent
prayer, passionate worship and connecting "heart to heart preparation" in the
Gold Room of the Rayburn Building.
- Third Wave: Corporate
gathering on the West lawn, where we lifted up Jesus in worship and prayer "in
the midst of the rain storm" with exuberant joy.
- Fourth Wave: After the
rain, many pastors and believers poured out onto the West Lawn of the Capitol
with a relentless zeal and continued in fervent prayer and

ministry leaders, future leaders, intercessors, "all" believers praying, making
proclamations and decrees out of the Heart of God.
How can we express our
love one for another on the National Day of Prayer?
- In humility we gather to decrease
so Christ can increase
- In humility we gather to pray for
- In humility we gather to worship
together, valuing each other above ourselves
- In humility we gather to
demonstrate our love for each other by placing the request of our brothers and
sisters above our own
- In humility we gather to receive
the mind of Christ -the Humble Servant who became obedient to death and was
therefore exalted and given the name that is above every name, "that at the
name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the
earth, and every tongue acknowledge that
Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father." (Philippians 2)
It's not about our
ability to perform well, sing well, preach well, entertain the crowds, excite
the masses, or pump up the congregation - It's all about JESUS. All we want is
for Jesus to be lifted up and at the center of everything we do. Let every word
exalt His name, every song bring Him praise, let every voice proclaim His
majesty, let every participant recognize His presence, let us humbly glorify
our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in word and deed.
Our prayer is simple,
Jesus be lifted up! "And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all
people to myself."John 12:32
