National Day of Prayer Mission Statement
The mission of the National Day of Prayer Task Force is to mobilize prayer in America and to encourage personal repentance and righteousness in the culture.
National Day of Prayer Ministry
The National Day of Prayer Committee formed a national prayer subcommittee in 1981, which became the Nation Day of Prayer Task Force in 1989. Led first by Vonette Bright until 1991, then by Shirley Dobson and Anne Graham Lotz assumed the position of the Chairman in 2016. Since 1993, there have been 1,361 proclamations by the President of the United States and state leaders, encouraging all Americans to pray on the National Day of Prayer.
Today, more than 48,000 events, reaching millions of people, are coordinated by more than 17,000 National Day of Prayer Task Force volunteer leaders across the nation.
All are welcome as we gather together in prayer to lift up our nation to the Lord God. We love to have people of all ages coming together to pray. We will have presenters say a few words about their specific prayer topic then lead in prayer. Our program will take place in our chapel and at the end of our prayer time we will gather outside for a balloon launch. This is a wonderful time of coming together to do what is most needed and most important, prayer. Now more than ever we need the power of God. From our homes, to schools, to businesses, to armed forces, to churches, to government we need the hand of God. Our nation will never a be great nation until we first our a Godly nation.
