On May 6, 2021, the first Thursday of May, our nation celebrates the National Day of Prayer. In addition to President/CEO of IFA, I serve on the board of the National Day of Prayer committee. This observance is very important to me and to our nation.
But on the National Day of Prayer, do you know what I will be thinking and praying about?
The 250,000 IFA intercessors!
For many, the National Day of Prayer is one day to pray for the nation. For IFA intercessors, it is a lifestyle of intercession, a passion, a commitment, and a prayer burden that is lived out every day. On the National Day of Prayer, I will be thanking God for the commitment of a quarter of a million intercessors to see God’s purposes for America fulfilled through sustained prayer and Spirit-led obedience.
I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy. . . (Phil 1:3-4)
To help you commemorate the National Day of Prayer, IFA is offering a packet of FREE resources–no donation necessary. We want you to be able to share your passion about praying for the nation with your friends. In this packet you will receive 5 copies of 3 important resources:
Praying for Government, a bookmark prayer guide that covers all 3 branches of the federal government
Top U.S. Officials, a bookmark prayer guide with a list of all of our nation’s leaders, so you can pray for them by name
31 Day Prayer Calendar, our completely revamped prayer calendar with a unique prayer for every day of the month
I want to personally invite you to join me in a 31 day prayer challenge–starting on the National Day of Prayer, let’s use the prayer calendar to pray for our nation together for 31 days straight. We encourage you to invite your friends to join you in this challenge! It is our hope that many more Christians will develop a daily habit of praying for the nation.
Gratefully in Christ,
