National Day of Prayer: America’s ‘Greatest Need’
The National Day of Prayer is Thursday, May 4. Miraculously and sovereignly, by a joint resolution of Congress in 1952, the National Day of Prayer began. Signed into law by President Harry S. Truman, this national call to pray for America takes place on the first Thursday of each May.
The National Day of Prayer mobilizes unified, public prayer for America. Praying for our nation needs to become a major movement in our nation daily. United with others, we stand together publicly to pray for our nation.
It is incumbent on each of us who have a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ the Lord to lead the way personally and cooperatively. Therefore, please consider these actions:
Pray personally for America on the National Day of Prayer.
The Scriptures call on us to pray for our nation and the leaders in our nation. Wherever you are located geographically, you can pray personally. We do not need to be spiritually asleep on this day, but alive and actively calling out to the Father for our nation.
You can also determine specific ways to pray for our nation. There are endless ways to pray for America, so ask the Spirit to reveal to you personally how you should pray. Also consider praying for America in these ways:
— Confess and repent of the sins of America
— Unity in America
— President Donald Trump
— Vice President Mike Pence
— Protection and provision for the families of President Trump and Vice President Pence
— Cabinet of the President
— Congressional members
— Military personnel
— Law enforcement and all first responders
— Churches and their pastors
— Schools and their leaders
— Spiritual revival in the church
— Spiritual awakening in America
— Acceleration and completion of the Great Commission of Jesus Christ
These are just suggestions. You can create your own list of ways to pray for America.
