Bible Reading and Prayer at the Capitol

As the National Day of Prayer approaches, a Bible reading marathon will again take place at the U.S. Capitol beginning this evening.  The U.S. Capitol Bible Reading Marathon, an annual event since 1990, is expected to attract hundreds of Christians to read and meditate on every verse of Scripture.  It is intended to honor God’s Word, highlight religious freedom, and bring together Christians across traditions, ethnicities, and languages.  The Bible marathon is scheduled to conclude on Tuesday afternoon. 

On Thursday, May 3, the National Day of Prayer will be celebrated nationwide.  Dr. David Jeremiah, Senior Pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church, will keynote the Day of Prayer’s National Observance on Capitol Hill.
