National Day of Prayer: May 5, 2016
February 16, 2016

Update from Mrs. Shirley Dobson

Warm greetings from National Day of Prayer headquarters!  It seems hard to believe that 2016 is already well underway.  Yet, here we are, and the final plans for our May 5th NDP events are now being made.  What a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the significance of this historic observance and the tremendous impact it can have on our great country.  In the words of Pastor J. Sidlow Baxter, “Men may spurn our appeals, reject our message, oppose our arguments, despise our persons, but they are helpless against our prayers.”  During the months ahead, both individually and corporately, we will no doubt experience times of great joy; but, we likely will also face unforeseen and difficult challenges.  Whatever circumstance we encounter, however, we can have confidence that God’s faithful presence and inexorable strength are with us as we call on His name.

In light of this truth, it is particularly noteworthy that at our country’s inception, there was a clear mandate to protect citizens’ religious freedoms and to create an atmosphere where prayer in the public square was not only acceptable, but embraced. However, these precious freedoms are being lost, so it is imperative that we, the church of our Lord Jesus Christ, stand boldly together as one voice, united in fervent intercession for our nation and its leaders.  This year’s NDP theme, “Wake Up America” allows us the opportunity to punctuate once again the importance of vigilance in maintaining these cherished rights that undergird American life: the freedom to gather, to worship, and to pray. To further highlight our theme, we’ve chosen Isaiah 58:1 as our Scripture for this year, which reads, “Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet.”

A passionate call to prayer requires a passionate leader to champion its cause, so I am pleased to announce… Keep Reading >>

National Prayer Summit 

Our annual Coordinator’s Conference was held here in Colorado Springs, October 16-18, and it was a wonderful time of renewal and encouragement for all.  It was a sell-out crowd and prayer leaders from around the world delivered a compelling message highlighting the importance of a vibrant and growing relationship with Christ.  One person echoed the sentiments of many by saying it was a great chance to “meet new people from all over the U.S.” and to feel “the encompassing spirit of intercessory prayer.”

After its tremendous success, our leadership team decided to join forces with Nick Hall and his team at Pulse ministries forTogether 2016. This special gathering will take place July 14-17 in Washington D.C. and feature an incredible line-up of speakers including Francis Chan, Dr. Josh McDowell, Dr. Luis Palau, Dr. Ravi Zacharias, Kirk Franklin and music from Hillsong United. Registration is only $89 per person, so get registered today at www.NationalDayofPrayer.org/prayer_summit
