Today is the National Day of Prayer, “an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation.”
Events are being held across America, and Project 21 spokesman Demetrius Minor says the need for such an observance is more important than ever. Demetrius says:
The National Day of Prayer is a great time to reflect upon the many blessings that have been bestowed upon our nation and to seek the wisdom and guidance of Almighty God. As our country continues to face many challenges and uncertainties, it is important that we seek refuge and strength in our Creator. We also pray for God’s direction for our family, friends, elected leaders and our communities.
