Today is the National Day of Prayer. Since 1952, Americans have been encouraged to pray on the first Thursday of May.
Many churches hold services on this day. Some churches have an open-door policy where people can come and pray throughout the day.
Whether you are attending a service or not, please take a minute to pray for our nation today. God promises to answer our prayers (II Chronicles 7:14).
GOD BLESS AMERICA
(words and music by Irving Berlin)
“While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that’s free,
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer. “
God Bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home.
