Today is the National Day of Prayer. Our first day of prayer together as a nation was in 1775, when the founding fathers of this nation came together to pray to receive direction in forming a new country. From that day on, we have had days of prayer as a nation, but the formal holiday was established in 1952.
Why do we have a national day of prayer? So that we as a nation can set aside a day that we recognize that we need the influence of the Almighty in our lives for us to be able to succeed as a nation. To ask God for direction, and to thank him for his blessings.
I want to ask you a bold statement today- would you pray for our nation today? I know, you may not be a prayer type of person, but the more people we have praying today the better.
Take just a moment to acknowledge that we need God to bless our nation and continue to direct the affairs of our government.
Now more than ever we need prayer.
Be blessed today
