“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” Colossians 4:2
Today is the 63rd Annual National Day of Prayer here in the United States. The National Day of Prayer Task Force says, “Our theme for 2014 is One Voice, United in Prayer, emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to place their faith in the unfailing character of their Creator, who is sovereign over all governments, authorities, and men. To further highlight our theme, we’ve chosen Romans 15:6 as our Scripture for this year: ‘So that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.’”
As we raise our voices in prayer across the nation may we humble ourselves before God and ask Him to do a work in each one of our hearts, that we would always be turned toward God, that we would be salt and light in our families, churches, communities and around the world.
“Prayer does not fit us for the greater work; prayer is the greater work.” -Oswald Chambers.
Would you take a few moments today and join with thousands of other voices and pray for your community, our nation and also for yourself? May we live in the spirit of prayer always, and today may we be intentional about praying together as believers, uniting in One Cry to our Creator God. So would you pray today?
“The greatest tragedy of life is not unanswered prayer, but unoffered prayer.” -F.B. Meyer
“In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart.” -John Bunyan
“We must begin to believe that God, in the mystery of prayer, has entrusted us with a force that can move the Heavenly world, and can bring its power down to earth.” -Andrew Murray
