The Cass County National Day of Prayer Task Force would like to invite the community to participate in the National Day of Prayer Observance Service on Thursday, May 6, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Veteran’s Freedom Park, 600 E. Market St.
The National Day of Prayer tradition predates the founding of the United States of America, evidenced by the Continental Congress’ proclamation in 1775 setting aside a day of prayer. In 1952, Congress established an annual day of prayer and, in 1988, that law was amended and signed by President Ronald Reagan, designating the National Day of Prayer as the first Thursday in May.
This year’s theme, Lord, Pour Out Your LOVE, LIFE, and LIBERTY is based on II Corinthians 3:17 (NKJV): “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”
As we step into the 70th year of observing the National Day of Prayer, we look forward to having you join us as we come together to pray for our nation. “We pray to see the Lord fill our lives, families, churches, workplace, education, military, government, arts, entertainment and media, with Biblical, not cultural, not worldly, but Spirit-empowered, Spirit-filled LOVE, LIFE and LIBERTY as designed and defined by our Creator and Savior,” said Kathy Branzell, president of the NDP Task Force.
In case of inclement weather, the service will be moved inside at Calvary Presbyterian Church, 701 Spencer St.
