63rd Annual Observance of the National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 1

National Day of PrayerNext Thursday, millions will assemble at thousands of local National Day of Prayer events across the nation, taking time out of their daily schedules to intercede on behalf of their communities, their nation, and their leaders.

The theme for the 2014 National Day of Prayer is “One Voice, United in Prayer,” which emphasizes the need for individuals to join together in corporate prayer, calling upon the unfailing character of God, who is sovereign over all governments, authorities, and men – the God under whom this Nation stands.

To further highlight this theme, event organizers selected as the Scripture for this year Romans 15:6, which states: “So that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

“This 63rd annual, national observance on May 1st will have profound significance for our country,” commented John Bornschein, National Day of Prayer (NDP) Task Force Vice-Chairman. “By joining together in prayer, we have an unprecedented opportunity to see the Lord’s healing and renewing power made manifest as we call upon citizens to humbly come before His throne.”

This year, Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of well-known evangelist Dr. Billy Graham, will serve as the Honorary Chairman of the NDP Task Force and will give the keynote address at the National Observance in Washington, DC, to be held at the Cannon House Office Building.

Other speakers include Dr. James and Shirley Dobson, Congressman Robert Aderholt, Vonette Bright, The Honorable Bob McEwen, Congressman Mike McIntyre, Don Moen, Chaplain Father Patrick Conroy, Dr. Dick Eastman, David Butts, John Bornschein, and more. Among those in attendance will be NRB President & CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson and NRB Chairman of the Board Bill Blount.

The 2014 National Observance of the National Day of Prayer will be broadcast live from the Cannon House Office Building on GodTV and the NDP Task Force website on Thursday, May 1, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. ET.
