National Day Of Prayer
National Day of Prayer Event at Calvary Chapel
Thursday, May 2nd
On Thursday, May 2nd please come out for a special time of worship and prayer as we join millions of Americans in asking God to forgive, heal, restore and bless our Nation. Many Christians are unaware that every year our President is required by law to proclaim a National Day of Prayer on the first Thursday in May. As citizens of the United States and as believers in Christ Jesus, we not only have a spiritual responsibility according to 1 Timothy 2:1-2 to pray, but a civic duty to heed our President’s call to stand in the gap for our nation. And who but God’s people are able to enter into the very throne room of Heaven with prayers and petitions
This year’s theme is “Love One Another” taken from John 13:34, where Christ tells His disciples to love one another as I have loved you.” At a time when our nation is experiencing such discord and division, let us draw together and petition our Heavenly Father to help us love one another as Christ has loved us.
Scripture tells us again and again that prayer is effective and that our loving Heavenly Father responds to His children’s earnest pleas in mighty ways. Please consider joining us as we demonstrate our dependence and faith in the God who answers prayer.
We encourage families to bring children of all ages to participate in prayer. However, optional childcare will be available for children 5 years old and younger.
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 heal their land.
1 Timothy 2:1-2
Therefore, I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.
