Dear Friend of the Family,
As you probably know, the 61st National Day of Prayer will be celebrated on May 3, 2012. Based on the understanding that America was birthed in prayer in reverence for the God of the Bible, the National Day of Prayer was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman.
The purpose of the National Day of Prayer is personal repentance and prayer, and mobilization of the Christian community to intercede for America and its leadership in the seven centers of power: Government, Military, Media, Business, Education, Church and Family. This year’s theme is from Psalm 33:12, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.”
We encourage you to host or help coordinate a National Day of Prayer (NDP) event in your community or simply attend a nearby event. Go to www.nationaldayofprayer.org to find a venue near you. There are already 26 events scheduled throughout the Commonwealth, including one to be held at the State House in Boston on May 3rd from Noon to 1:00 pm in the historic House Chamber. You can download an NDP Flyer HERE.
The Massachusetts State Coordinator for the National Day of Prayer is Pastor Victor Khokhlan. He can be reached at 781-363-6741 or by email at email@example.com . Please contact Pastor Khokhlan if you are hosting an event in your community.
