National Day of Prayer 2024

On Thursday, May 2 we lift our voices to God in prayer to ask for healing and renewing power for seven centers of civic influence—Family, Church, Business & Workplace, Education, Military, Government, Arts & Media & Entertainment. Everyone is invited to participate in this corporate prayer.

In the LAC Rooted experience, prayer is one of the rhythms of discipleship for individuals and small groups.  We can expand our prayer focus to a national level through the annual National Day of Prayer. This year’s theme “Lift Up The Word– Light Up The World”—is based on the words of David in 2 Samuel 22:29-31 that say to rely on God and His word to be the light and the truth in the world, and a shield of protection for those who are in the world but not of it.

Even a casual scan of the news should lead followers of Jesus to be concerned that our world desperately needs the presence of God’s Spirit and the promise of the Gospel.  When we are tempted to become discouraged, God reminds us that he is sovereign over all events. In the midst of this, God calls his Church to intercede for the people and events happening around us. Through prayer, we are able to tap into God’s wisdom, strength, protection, and peace. He stands ready to respond to our needs when we humbly ask for divine intervention in human affairs.
