Today is the National Day of Prayer. On April 17, 1952, President Harry Truman signed a bill proclaiming the National Day of Prayer into law in the United States. President Reagan amended the law in 1988, designating the first Thursday of May each year as the National Day of Prayer. The National Prayer Committee was formed in the United States in 1972. This year there are four prayer priorities for our country that I’d like to share with you.
- God Bless the USA – forgive us and bless us spiritually, economically, and keep us secure from harm from those without and within our country.
- Pray for Americans to Love One Another, Beginning Among Christ Followers – Empower us to make every effort to live in unity.
- Pray for the Centers of Influence in America – our government leaders, our military, our families, our business owners, and teachers.
- Ask God for the National Day of Prayer to become a catalytic spiritual movement across America – help us to love others as You have loved us: willfully, sacrificially, and unconditionally.
In Jesus name, Amen
God Bless, Courtney
