Local Day of Prayer set for May 5

Thursday, April 28, 2022

I invite you to join us in celebrating National Day of Prayer to be held on the front steps of the Stillwater County Courthouse at noon on May 5. The theme is this year is “Colossians 2:6-7: “Exalt the Lord who has established us…”

Each year I wonder how our country could be less united in leadership and today we see lack of Unity. It seems that we are suffering through lack of focus rather than leadership concentrating on the true welfare of our country. Today and everyday we need to unite in Prayer for our country and leadership.

More than ever we need the guiding hand of God to help stabilize our nation and unite us in a common bond we desperately need God’s blessing upon our nation.

Our future desperately needs God’s guidance in our lives. Our children are our future and we need to lead them forward confidently and wisely.

In 1775 the First Continental Congress called for a National Day of Prayer.

In 1952 President Harry S. Truman signed a joint resolution of Congress establishing an annual National Day of Prayer.

In 1954 President Dwight D. Eisenhower authorized the addition of two powerful words to the Pledge of Allegiance, “Under God” reaffirming religious faith In America’s heritage and future. Back thru history to George Washington Our Government leaders depended on the guidance of God.

Our Vision is to communicate with every family the need for prayer and to actively mobilize families into praying daily for our Federal, State, County and City leadership.

National Day of Prayer seeks to promote awareness of the significance of laying aside differences and joining hearts in support of our leadership by praying for them as well as encouraging them.

We invite all to come and participate and we offer this opportunity on May 5th. We keep this observance to 30 minutes since many join us on their lunch hour and each person’s time is precious.

Please join us to observe National Day of Prayer. We need to be united in prayer to cover our leaders asking for Divine Guidance. If you have any questions, you may contact me Gwen Aubrey at 322- 5137.

Thank you for standing with us in this effort. Our nation is in crisis and we can help turn it around.
