National Day of Prayer is an annual American observance held on the first Thursday of May, designated by Congress when people are encouraged “to turn to God in prayer.”
Thursday, May 1 is the 63rd NDP. As usual, there will be two different county-wide prayer services in Placerville. Both are free, the public is welcome and encouraged to attend. The morning event begins at 6:45 a.m. with (an inside) continental prayer breakfast at Cold Springs Community Church located at 2600 Cold Springs Road. The evening outdoor prayer service begins at 6 p.m. at the Superior Court House steps (outside) at 495 Main Street. If able, arrive a little early and if you want, please bring a small American flag and a folding chair. Veterans, soldiers and military families, we honor you and your service to our nation that makes it possible to practice freedom of religion and to publicly gather. Please join us by 6 p.m. and lead in The Pledge of Allegiance.
The theme for this year is “One voice, united in prayer,” which was chosen by the NDP Task Force based on the Scripture for this year, which is from Romans 5:16.
Also, if you, your school, church, Bible study group, etc. are observing National Day of Prayer, please go to the Website (nationaldayofprayer.org) and post it. And way to go California. Last year our Golden State led the nation with the most Christian praise and prayer gatherings. Hallelujah!
Please consider gathering together as we pray for our county including families, youth, leaders, military, law enforcement, firefighters and EMTs, churches, education, homeless, government, for the nation and more. May God bless us as we bless Him. Amen.
