Thursday, May 2, 2019, has been established by the United States Congress as the National Day of Prayer. This first Thursday in May is set aside to remember our spiritual heritage and the foundation our country was built upon. Tens of thousands of prayer events are planned across the country. In churches, parks and on courthouse steps, citizens will be praying for our nation, government leaders, media, military, schools, churches, businesses, and families.
The National Day of Prayer was established as an annual event in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. The observance of the National Day of Prayer is founded on the constitutional rights of freedom of speech and freedom of religion. All Americans are encouraged to gather publicly to worship and pray for our land. Visit www.nationaldayofprayer.org to learn more.
The national theme for 2019 is “Love One Another” and is based on the verse from John 13:34 which states: “Love one another. Just as I have loved you.” Operation Transformation, along with Blue Water Area Churches, is sponsoring a time of prayer for people to come together and corporately pray for our nation, community, churches, and family. Please join with us. The service is free and open to all: Noon Prayer Service from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. on May 2nd inside at the Port Huron City Building Auditorium, 100 McMorran Blvd., Port Huron. Various pastors will be leading times of prayer for specific areas. Special music will be provided by the New Life Christian Academy Choir.
