National Prayer Day
Dear Friends and Family,
On May 7, Christians have the privilege of participating in the National Day of Prayer. If you do not pray for our country daily, now is an opportunity to join with others in prayer. If you wish to find a prayer day event, the National Day of Prayer Task Force has a map that helps individuals locate the nearest event location.
In addition to participating in the National Day of Prayer, consider joining in a special prayer and petition campaign. President Obama's administration has set-up a special website on which they invite Americans to contact them with questions, comments, concerns, or well wishes for the President or his staff. The National Day of Prayer would be an appropriate day for Christians to unite and tell the President that we pray for him and to send him our petitions.
Consider sending the President Obama a prayer expressing your Christian support of him as our elected leader. Or send him a letter expressing your concerns about the well being of our country and what you as a citizen of the United States want from your elected officials.
If Christians unite in prayer, God will respond.
Please send this email to everyone you know who might be interested in letting our government know that Christians care about the decisions our elected officials make and that we pray for our leaders.
