Can you imagine the ministry of the National Day of Prayer with a quarterly prayer magazine, a church prayer leaders network, and the ability to provide access to prayer resources at your fingertips?
This is now a reality because the National Day of Prayer Task Force recently accepted the gift to our ministry of Prayer Connect magazine, the Church Prayer Leaders Network, and PrayerShop Publishing. They will broaden the scope of the National Day of Prayer beyond a single day, helping us mobilize Americans to pray daily for our nation, our communities, and our churches.
Believing This Could Be Our Greatest Year
For 30 years, the National Day of Prayer Task Force has been at the forefront of raising up prayer for our nation on the first Thursday of May. As we approach another National Day of Prayer, we are again hard at work mobilizing, motivating, and equipping millions of people to pray for our nation. This year’s theme, “Unity,” has struck a nerve, and we suspect that we will have our largest participation ever on Thursday, May 3, 2018.
Clearly, it has never been more important for Christians to pray fervently for revival in the Church and a spiritual awakening in America as it is today. But, as important as that is, rallying people to pray one day a year is not enough. We need to equip, motivate, and mobilize believers to pray for America.
We need to raise up an army of believers who will pray for their churches, their communities, and their nation. This will broaden the scope of the National Day of Prayer beyond a single day, helping us mobilize Americans to pray for our nation, our communities, and our churches.
