Celebrating The 71st National Day of Prayer

Woodbridge residents are invited to join together in person for prayer on Thursday, May 5, 2022, 6:30 PM at Trinity Church, 33 Center Road in Woodbridge in celebration of the annual National Day of Prayer.  This is the Judeo-Christian expression of the National Day of Prayer, and all are welcome!

The National Day of Prayer gives us the opportunity to come together as one unified body of believers to pray for America’s leaders, our town, and our families.  Our Nation’s founding fathers sought the wisdom of God when facing difficult days and critical decisions, and we are called to do the same.  During the gathering, church leaders and others will lead in prayers for the needs and concerns of our Government, Military, First Responders, Media, Business/Workplace, Education, Church, and Family.

The theme for 2022 is “Exalt the Lord Who Has Established Us”, based on the New Testament scripture Colossians 2:6-7.  Prayer has been the key to the establishment and success America has experienced from her beginning, and by God’s grace and our diligence to follow truth, our country will continue to thrive.

President Harry Truman designated the first National Day of Prayer in 1952.  The event was then set for the first Thursday in May each year by President Reagan.  On the occasion of the 1982 National Day of Prayer, President Reagan 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.”  President Reagan also stated, “If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a Nation gone under”.

Let’s take some time out of our busy lives to come together to acknowledge God’s goodness, forgiveness, and protection over our Nation and seek Him for the days ahead.
