The First Thursday in May
May 1, 2008
The 57th Annual National Day of Prayer will take place Thursday, -May 1, 2008. The theme for this year is "Prayer! America's Strength and Shield" and is based on the verse from Psalm 28:7 which states: "The Lord is my strength and shield; my heart trusts in Him and I am helped."
|National Day of Prayer 2008
This is a critical time to be in prayer for America. The biblical principles upon which our country was founded are coming under attack in every segment of society. Yet despite this troubling trend we can take heart in the knowledge that God hears and responds to the earnest cries of His people. In one of my favorite Psalms, 28:7, David makes this confident declaration: "The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped." What a comforting reminder that God is indeed the source of all power, guidance and protection.
It is with this in mind that we chose for our 2008 National Day of Prayer theme, "Prayer, America's Strength and Shield."
It is tremendously heartening to know that you are standing with us as we call this great nation to prayer. Thank you for devoting yourself to this cause and please know that we are remembering you before God's throne as we work together to spark a nationwide revival of prayer and repentance.
