Why NDP?

The annual National Day of Prayer Observances are a 
time to pray for our nation and be intentional to protect 
and exercise our freedom to publicly pray.  

The mission of the National Day of Prayer Task Force is to
mobilize prayer in America and to encourage personal 
repentance and righteousness in the culture.

"Wake Up America" is the theme for 2016.  Isaiah 58:1A NIV

The National Day of Prayer is on Thursday, May 5, 2016.  
It is always held on the first Thursday in May.  Resources for 
the day may be ordered at www.nationaldayofprayer.org, 
webstore.   Order early.  

There  has been an increasing response statewide to prayer this year. Our network is growing.  Regional state leaders are being set in place.  The regional leaders will be over-seeing several counties 
and leading The Rampart and mobilizing prayer on conference 
calls and in homes.

Historically, several national days of prayer were held in the
nation prior to the official annual day of observance was created
by Congress in 1952.  

Prior to the nation's founding, the Second Continental Congress issued a proclamation that recommended a day of public humiliation, fasting and prayer to be observed by the English colonies on Thursday, July 20, 1775.  

George Washington acknowledged a second day of fasting, and
prayer to be held on Thursday, May 6, 1779. There were other days of prayer called by the nation's forefathers.  We continue this honorable tradition and set aside a day to call the nation to humble itself before God to pray, fast and be mindful of our many blessings.
