National Day of Prayer

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.” 2 Chron. 7:14-15

This year’s theme is Prayer…America’s Hope.

Theme verse: Psalm 33:22. “We wait in hope for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His Holy name. May Your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in You.” (Verses 20-22)

O Lord, please have mercy on our country, and help your people to turn back to you. For you, only, are our Hope and our Salvation, and we need you desperately!

A few pictures from our school’s NDP event! We’re praising the Lord for the freedom to advertise and gather around the flag pole to pray! It was a beautiful morning… the only day this week that the sun was shining! Thank you, Lord!
