National Day of Prayer May 1

Pam Griffin

The 63rd annual National Day of Prayer on May 1 will have profound significance for our country. It is an unprecedented opportunity to see the Lord’s healing and renewing power made manifest as citizens humbly come before His throne. More than 40,000 groups have signed up for the event across the nation.

Local residents are invited to gather as a city to pray for our country at 10 a.m. May 1 at the City Hall flag pole. Mayor Mel Ponder will join in for a time of prayer. 

The theme for 2014 is One Voice, United in Prayer, emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to place their faith in the unfailing character of their Creator, who is sovereign over all governments, authorities, and men. To further highlight the theme, Romans 15:6 is the Scripture for this year:  “So that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
