Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, that the joint resolution entitled Joint Resolution to provide for setting aside an appropriate day as a National Day of Prayer, approved April 17, 1952 (Public Law 82-324;66 Stat. 64), is amended by striking a suitable day each year, other than a Sunday and inserting in lieu there of the first Thursday in May in each year.
It’s Official…what can your city do?
Here’s an example, in Leoti, Kansas they start the day at 7 a.m. at the town flag pole. At the public school the children pray over the police, the fire department, the Mayor, and city officials. At the public square they read the Word of God andpray. The night before there is a Youth Rally for Prayer. A dinner, a speaker, and the youth pray. One year they had the Rachels Dad from Columbine.
How about you?
Let’s begin to think about how you would like to impact the world around you. What is the Lord calling you to do?
