Today, millions of Americans will participate in National Day of Prayer events throughout the country. The National Day of Prayer Web site offers lots of ways you can participate:
1) Find an event in your area. The NDP Web site offers a listing of thousands of events planned across the country. In addition, your church may be conducting a special prayer service that is not listed in the NDP database.
2) Watch the live webcast today from 9 a.m. to noon EDT or the Hollywood-themed webcast Thursday evening at 7:30 p.m. PDT.
3) Set aside some quiet time alone today to pray for our nation and its leaders.
NDP organizers hope today is just the beginning of a deeper prayer movement across the country. Christians are encouraged to adopt a pastor, local politician, media personality or other leader and regularly pray for them. As part of this effort, the NDP Task Force has set up an Adopt-A-Leader Web site to assist.
Additionally, Christians are encouraged to pray regularly for seven institutions–government, military, media, business, education, church and family–and their leaders. Details about this “7 x 7” prayer effort as well as specific prayer points for each institution are available on the NDP Web site.
With a committment to pray for these areas on a regular basis, there is no reason why Christians can’t come together to make every day a national day of prayer–whether it is officially recognized or not.
