Let's face it America.  We are living through some very troubled times and if this country doesn't bow to God the Father, we are destined for destruction.

With that sobering thought in mind, hopefully you’ll join the millions of American Christians and spend some time in prayer on the annual “National Day of Prayer” this Thursday, May 2.

According to NationalDayofPrayer.org:

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.

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 theme for this year's 2024 National Day of Prayer is "Lift Up the Word - Light Up the World" and it's based on scripture found in 2 Samuel 22:29-31

For you are my lamp, O Lord, and my God lightens my darkness. For by You I can run against a troop, and by my God I can leap over a wall. This God—his way is perfect; the word of the Lord proves true; He is a shield for all those who take refuge in Him.
