National Day of Prayer, is held each year the first Thursday of May, this year on Thursday, May 7, was organized differently this year due to social distancing.

The verse:  "For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea."  Habakkuk 2:14 NIV

:Pray God's Glory Across the Earth" was the title of one of the brochures, asking people to pray for:  church, government, family, education, business, military, and media.

Ephesians 3:14 - 19 NASB

"Heavenly Father, we pray that you will extend an expand Your glory through our families as we dwell in You."

"We pray that You strengthen marriages so that husbands and wives would remain faithful to You and to one another. We pray that parents would love and nurture their children spiritually in Your word and ways as well as lovingly providing for their physical, emotional and mental needs."


* that husbands and wives would love and respect one another with faithfulness and ever-growing devotion for one another and God.

* that families would pray, read, and study the Bible, worship, and serve together, building one another up in faith, love, hope, and truth.

* that children would grow up in safe and supportive homes filled with the love and principles of Jesus and that they will respect and love their parents.

* that God would head the wounds of abandonment and abuse; that all people would know that they are loved. May every person live in the abundant life and divine destiny authored and perfected by Jesus.

(Ephesians 5:22-33; Mark 3:25)
