Dear God, I praise You for the gift of prayer. The most sacred duty to which we are called to do is prayer. We must pray without ceasing. The prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective. If my people will humble themselves and pray. God, I know you want your people to pray. Prayer is an assignment from you that must take first priority. When our prayers are exactly in one accord with what you desire, we can be assured that the answer will be yes. God, may thy will be done in the lives of every child, youth, young adult, adult, and senior of every nationality in the World. Please draw many to the National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 6, at noon at the Veteran’s Memorial between the Brainerd Post Office and the courthouse. God, thank you for never giving up on us.
In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, amen.
