In the 2013 National Day of Prayer theme we ask all to: "Pray for America"
Americans, please UNITE and PRAY throughout the year for our Country. Pray that America would seek God's guidance in all matters, whether for our personal lives or for the nation as a whole. Without God we can do nothing.
As our nation struggles with continued economic insecurity, vast healthcare reform, and countless challenges to our constitutional rights, citizens of the United States must exercise their freedom to gather, worship, and pray. Millions will answer the call to pray as intercession will be made for America and its leadership.
This year’s National Day of Prayer theme, “Pray for America”, is based on Matthew 12:21 which reminds us that “In His name shall the Gentiles trust.” National Day of Prayer (NDP) Task Force Chairman Shirley Dobson, wife of Family Talk founder Dr. James Dobson, has said that, “The American people continue to be plagued with challenges that defy simple answers, and our hope lies in humbly seeking the Almighty’s guidance, protection, and blessing – not only on the National Day of Prayer, but throughout the year.”
Senior Pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship and Founder of Harvest Crusades – Greg Laurie – served as the 2013 Honorary Chairman of the NDP Task Force and gave the keynote address at the National Observance in Washington, D.C., held at the Cannon House Office Building [May 2, 2013].
