8 Ways to Engage in the National Day of Prayer

Do you have a few minutes today to invest in the future of our nation?NDP-2014-facebook-TLImage-1.00CB

It won’t cost you anything, and you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your home if you don’t want to. That’s because today, Thursday May 1, we are privileged to celebrate the annual National Day of Prayer.

This year’s theme  is One Voice, United in Prayer, and the scripture verse is Romans 15:6. “So that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Can’t you imagine hundreds of thousands of prayers rising up to God today as one? I can!
