The National Day of Prayer affords residents the opportunity to join in prayer as one unified body with those church leaders, laymen and youth, who will be reading Scriptures and leading in prayers for the Government, Military/First Responders, Media, Business/Workplace, Education, Church, Family, and more. There will also be a reading of the National Day of Prayer Proclamation and the 2021 National Prayer. This is an unprecedented opportunity for citizens to humbly come in faith, asking God for his forgiveness, healing, and guidance for our Nation. Prayer has been the key to the success America has experienced from her birth, and by God’s grace and our diligence to follow truth, she will continue to thrive.
The theme for 2021 is “Lord Pour Out Your Love, Life, and Liberty”, emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to place their faith in the unfailing character of their Creator, who is sovereign over all governments, authorities, and men, and who is the ultimate Source of our freedoms. The Scripture reference is 2 Corinthians 3:17.
President Harry Truman designated the first National Day of Prayer in 1952. The event was designated for the first Thursday in May annually by President Ronald Reagan. President Reagan, on the occasion of the 1982 National Day of Prayer, remarked that “prayer has sustained our people in crisis, strengthened us in times of challenge, and guided us through our daily lives since the first settlers came to this continent. Our forbearers came not for gold, but mainly in search of God and the freedom to worship in their own way.” He also stated, “If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a Nation gone under,”
Please encourage your family and friends to join in this important time of prayer for Woodbridge and our Nation. You can find the history of the National Day of Prayer and additional valuable information at nationaldayofprayer.org.
