The 66th annual National Observance will be held on May 4th, 2017 on the Comanche Couthouse Lawn at 12:00 noon. You’re invited to join in on the prayer for America! Why pray for america? God is sovereign and nothing comes as a surprise to Him. Whether we face fluctuating economics, threats from abroad, unrest at home, or other troubling circumstances, our Heavenly Father is not caught unaware. Through prayer, we are able to tap into His wisdom, strength, protection, and peace. He stands ready to respond to our needs when we humbly ask for divine intervention in the affairs of men. As we Pray for America whose pledge of allegiance recounts that we are” one nation under God,” and whose currency states that it is “in God we trust,” we want Americans to encounter the God who rules over their country. “He who forms the mountains, creates the wind, and reveals His thoughts to man, He who turns dawn to darkness, and treads the high places of the earth - the LORD God Almighty is His name.”- Amos 4:13 NIV He is the One who gave us this promise in 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” As we humbly and diligently seek Him, we’ll be changed, and we’ll see transformation in America through prayer! Equipped To P.R.A.Y. Praise - Thank God for what He has already accomplished through Jesus. Repent - Confess your sins and shortcomings. Repent personally and on behalf of our nation. The Lord is quick to forgive when we come humbly to Him. Ask - Ask God to reveal truth, turn our hearts back toward Him, and bring healing. Yield - Yield to the Lord and recognize that He has heard our prayers and will answer according to His will. He is ready to provide guidance and direction. Our Mission- The mission of the National Day of Prayer Task Force is to mobilize prayer in America and to encourage personal repentance and righteousness in the culture.
