National Day of Prayer 2008

Today is the National Day of Prayer for the United States. The purpose of the National Day of Prayer is to gather the people of our country to come together and pray, particularly for our nation and for those in leadership on all levels of local, national, church and educational areas of influence.

Let me encourage you to participate in this special day of prayer for our nation. Over 40,000 prayer events are scheduled to take place this year across the country -– at churches, schools, government buildings and other public gathering places. Some local pastors and I will be hosting an event in Agawam, MA during the lunch hour. To find an event near you, click here.

Tony Dungy, head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, shares his thoughts on prayer and challenges Americans to unite in prayer in this video.

    Gee Ray, we spent our noon time on the city hall steps of the city of Plantation. We had 33 hardy souls including one commissioner. It was a good day. It was great to be praying on the steps of City Hall. I hope you had a great national day of prayer.

    Barrie – I miss those times praying out in front of City Hall down in Plantation. We had about the same number up here. We met on the village green and had four pastors participating as well as the mayor!

    Hi Ray, well we were a bit disappointed because Chip was the only Pastor in attendence. We plan on doing some leg work next year with a few of the local church’s to get better participation.
