Get Started

Each year, millions of people unite on the National Day of Prayer - at thousands of events around the country - to pray! While prayer is not a seasonal or annual thing, our nation pauses to observe a National Day of Prayer on the first Thursday every May. On this day, Christians have an opportunity to emphasize the importance of prayer as a testimony to who God is, what we believe, and the fact that our Nation was founded upon the truths of God’s Word, and much prayer!

Our network of volunteers, combined with our resources and online tools, will help guide you through the process of engaging your community in prayer! To learn more about becoming a volunteer, please follow the steps below.

If you hosted an event, please feel free to complete an EVENT SURVEY and UPLOAD PICTURES from your event.

Our goal is to see communities transformed across America through the power of prayer and that happens one family at a time. Lives are being changed and we pray in expectation believing that God can and will make a difference if we seek Him (II Chronicles 7:14). We also know that organizing prayer is not always easy so we are not expecting you to fill stadiums with people. The Scriptures tell us that where two or more are gathered, there He is in their midst (Matthew 18:20). So, start simple and enjoy the journey. Organizing prayer is exciting and we are delighted you have joined us in this ministry to our nation. Together we can make a difference!
