What an honor it is to address you from my position as the Chairman of the National Day of Prayer Task Force! Although I have been in a steep learning curve during these past six months, and am still discovering so much that I have yet to learn, I am confident God has given me this assignment “for such a time as this.” Thank you for your prayers as well as for your encouraging words through emails and notes. I have been made to feel very much a part of the NDP family.
It’s interesting that at the same time God has called me to chair this ministry... at the same time He has been expanding NDP... at the very same time He has been increasing America’s awareness of the need for prayer. Without a doubt, God is moving in our nation, calling His people to pray as never before.
We at NDP want to be in lock step with Him. For this we need your help. We need your prayers first and foremost—pray for wisdom, clear direction, unity within our network, and prompt, accurate communication between the staff, Board, the regional leaders, and myself. Pray that God will grant us a sharpened focus on His Son and a sharpened sensitivity to His Spirit. Pray that we will be effective in getting people to pray... and keep praying.
We also need your financial gifts to help us carry out what we believe is a sacred charge—to lead people to pray and seek the face of God during these very strategic days. As a partner, I know you understand the practical costs involved in an endeavor of this magnitude. I don’t believe there has ever been a more critical time for God’s people to come together in order to stand in the gap for our nation. Please help us. For more information on how you can support our efforts financially and as a volunteer, visit our website at www.nationaldayofprayer.org/donate.
During this holiday season, join with me in thanking God for our freedom which has not been won easily and is even now being challenged by foreign governments, Islamic terrorists, and anarchy in our streets. Together, let’s ask Him to grant us peace in our hearts and in our homes, on our streets and in our state houses. Pray now that He will bless those who at this moment are defending our freedom by their courageous sacrifice—willing to lay down their lives to keep us free and safe. I pray we will never abuse our freedom or take it for granted, but will guard it as the gift from God that it is.
For His Glory,
Anne Graham Lotz, Chairman
