National Day of Prayer
ALL are welcome! This is a time of prayer for UNITY for our community and our nation.
Join us at First Baptist Church on the National Day of Prayer for a time of prayer for unity in our great nation. We will also pray for our government, military, media, teachers, businesses, churches, and families. You are welcome to pray aloud or to join with prayer in Spirit.
The theme of Unity this year comes from Ephesians 4:3, “Making every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace”.
The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Our Task Force is a privately funded organization whose purpose is to encourage participation on the National Day of Prayer. It exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families. The Task Force represents a Judeo-Christian expression of the national observance, based on our understanding that this country was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the Bible.
