4 Living Illustrations Why "Love One Another" is the Right Theme for the National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 2, 2019

I am very excited and equally as convicted that Love One Another is the right theme for the 2019 National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 2, 2019. I would like to share four living illustrations why it is a fantastic and needed theme. Illustration #1: “Love One Another” are the words of Jesus in John 13:34, “Love one another.
