AMERICANS UNITE TO PRAY ON MAY 6th
Americans from all walks of life will gather on May 6th to lift up our country in prayer for the National Day of Prayer. Our nation has endured a year marked by tragedy and pain, but we know prayer has carried us through these days and the hand of God will move us into a brighter future. This year marks 70 years since Reverend Billy Graham stood on the capitol steps in February 1952 and called for congress and the president to establish a day of prayer. By April of that year, President Truman signed the legislation into public law. For seven decades, the efforts of the National Day of Prayer Task Force have mobilized Americans to observe the National Day of Prayer in all 50 states and in U.S. territories to pray for those who lead and those in need in our nation.
THEME AND FOCUS
Each year the NDP Task Force President asks the Lord for a theme to guide prayers. 2021 Theme: “LORD pour out Your LOVE, LIFE, and LIBERTY.” 2021 Verse: 2 Corinthians 3:17 NKJV, “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” The annual theme art is a way to cast the vision of our prayers. This year we are praying for the LOVE, LIFE and LIBERTY found in Jesus Christ to impact Americans from all walks of life and backgrounds.
ABOUT THE MINISTRY
The National Day of Prayer Task Force is led by our President, Kathy Branzell and governed by an 11- member Board of Directors who also preside over the National Prayer Committee. The Mission of the NDP Task Force is to mobilize prayer in America and to encourage personal repentance and righteousness in the culture. The efforts of the National Day of Prayer Task Force are carried out in accordance with its Judeo-Christian beliefs. The National Day of Prayer, as designated by our government, belongs to all Americans—it is not owned by any one group, and every American can observe NDP in their own way. Everyone is invited to attend a NDP Task Force event to hear messages and prayers in the name of Jesus Christ. We pray for Jesus to bless those who lead and those in need throughout our country.
