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” next Thursday, May 5.

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 2022 National Day of Prayer is "Exalt the Lord Who Has Established Us" and it's this author's estimation that if we don't understand the importance and practice this statement, our country is certainly doomed, and sooner than later.

You can actually watch the National Day of Prayer activities live from Washington D.C. here at NationalDayofPrayer.org
