God does more when we pray! As James 5:16b reminds us, “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” When believers across our community and nation unite in prayer, we see God move in schools, homes, businesses and every sphere of influence.
Quote from the president of this year’s National Day of Prayer Task Force:
“Our humble, fervent, heartfelt, and passionate prayers put God’s abilities in action,” said National Day of Prayer Task Force president, Kathy Branzell. “These are the prayers that we want to pray with our eyes wide open so we don’t miss a moment of God’s heart and hands moving. Even as our words hang in the air, He is already answering, touched just as Jesus was on earth by the faith with which someone asks and believes. He takes our intercession and impacts not just the course of time, but the course of souls and the Kingdom. God uses our prayers to write the history books of tomorrow.”
About the National Day of Prayer:
The Continental Congress set aside a day of prayer in 1775, predating the founding of our nation. In 1952, Congress established an annual day of prayer and, in 1988, that law was amended, designating the National Day of Prayer as the first Thursday in May.
