A Race for America



On July 4, 2013, the National Day of Prayer Task Force will host its very first 5K – Walk, Run, Roll event in Pennsauken, NJ, just outside of Philadelphia. Indeed it is the season when we spend a great deal of time outdoors enjoying the beauty of the world around us that often goes overlooked in the busyness of our day. But this is not just another event. For those of you who enjoy the challenge of a good 3.1-mile run, you won’t be disappointed. This Pray for America 5K event will feature state-of-the-art race results, t-shirts, music and more but for the rest of us non-runners, this is going to be a special time of camaraderie as we unite in one-accord and in one voice to celebrate the work of prayer across our nation.


In the spirit of I Corinthians 9:24-27, we shall all run the race – and this is also in the everydayness of life – but we celebrate the fullness of I Timothy 4:8 that although exercise is good, we preserve in all godliness to do the “good work” (Eph 2:10) to which we have been called. So this is a race like non-other. Many other notable organizations put together walk and run type events regularly, but this is the first and only 5K event dedicated to prayer and the work of the prayer mobilizers from coast to coast. All are welcome! On this special day we will celebrate our Independence Day and cheer on the Pray for America Bus Tour team as they cross the finish line of the first route. Many of us will have been on the road for 35 days straight engaging, equipping and encouraging communities – speaking as many as 5x per day – leading up to this Pray for America 5K. So, the finish line will be momentous and exciting…and we want you there!

If you don’t plan to walk, roll or run during the race, then make plans to join us anyway for what is sure to be a special time of celebration with friends of family. See you in Philadelphia on July 4!
