Promoting Your Event in Local Media

Each year, we work to provide you with tools that you can use to rally hundreds in your community to respond to our President’s annual National Day of Prayer proclamation.  You can do this by using these tools to encourage people to ‘turn to God in prayer and meditation at churches, in groups, and as individuals.’ As an annual national observance established in public law...

Pray for America - Now!

You don’t have to look far to see the burdens and deep needs upon our beloved nation.  I believe you and I are living in an appointed period, unprecedented in our lifetimes in America. While it could be disheartening, consider that this country is home to our families, work life, and the religious liberty through which we as citizens have been blessed beyond comparison to life in most other nations. Therein lies the God opportunity for us now. The opportunity is prayer itself to our Lord God, Who really is ALL mighty.  Talking to Him, listening and obeying in response... Read more >>

Answer the Call - Stand in the Gap

First Thursday Call to Prayer, January 5th, 2017

23 Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, Let not the mighty man glory in his might, Nor let the rich man glory in his riches; 24 But let him who glories glory in this, That he understands and knows Me, That I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight,” says the Lord. Jeremiah 9:23-24 Great God of creation. We bow before You boasting of Your greatness and Your glory. No one compares to You.  No one is Your equal. We look at Your creation and marvel at the infinite power and wisdom that are Yours.  Nothing is beyond Your reach. “You bring out... Read more >>
