Are you willing to commit to pray for our country seven days a week? Are you able to set aside time in your car, during your coffee break, or before bedtime? We want to challenge you make this prayer commitment. 7x7 involves praying for seven centers of power seven days a week: Government, Military, Media, Business, Education, Church and Family. By remembering these specific prayer points, we can cover all Americans with God's power. Together, we will see positive change!
These are defining days in America. Strong attacks against basic freedoms are being made daily across our heartland.
National Day of Prayer Task Force is the organization that gives leadership and support for Christian expression of NDP. Events are planned and funded by Christians, but are open to anyone who desires to pray in unity with their own expression of faith.
This year it is imperative that we rally our family, friends, neighbors, coworkers and church to join in public prayers - seeking healing and blessing for our nation - practicing, protecting and preserving our freedoms to gather publicly to worship and pray. The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first week of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for our leaders, nation and the seven centers of power.
PRAYER FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS (Nahum 1:7) is the theme for daily discipline of praying for:
GOVERNMENT - "When all Israel heard the verdict the king had given, they held the king in awe, because they saw that he had wisdom from God to administer justice." 1 Kings 3:28
MILITARY - "He appointed military officers over the people and assembled them ...and encouraged them with these words: Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged because of the king of Assyria and the vast army with him, for there is a greater power with us than with him. With him is only the arm of the flesh, but with us is the Lord our God to help us and to fight our battles." (2 Chronicles 32:6-8)
MEDIA - "Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things." (Philippians 4:8)
BUSINESS - "I have filled him with the Spirit of God, giving him great wisdom, ability, and expertise in all kinds of crafts. He is a master craftsman, expert in working." (Exodus 31:3-4)
EDUCATION - "and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding." (Proverbs 1:9)
CHURCH - "So then just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy. which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ." (Colossians 2:6-8)
FAMILY - "If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand." (Mark 3:25)
Psalm 33:22 "May your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in you.."
