The mission of the National Day of Prayer Task Force is to mobilize prayer in America & to encourage personal repentance and righteousness in the culture. The mission of NDP Green Bay is not only to embrace and join in that national mission, but to mobilize prayer in Northeastern Wisconsin and serve as the catalyst for repentance and revival right in our backyard.
The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. The National Task Force’s purpose is to encourage participation on the National Day of Prayer. It exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families.[read more=”Read more…”]
Many Christians are unaware that they live in a nation that has a law in place requiring our President proclaim a National Day of Prayer each year on the first Thursday in May.
The President shall issue each year a proclamation designating the first Thursday in May as a National Day of Prayer on which the people of the United States may turn to God in prayer and meditation at churches, in groups, and as individuals (Public Law 105-225)
As citizens and residents of the United States, and as believers in Christ Jesus, we not only have a spiritual responsibility according to 1Timothy 1:1-2 to pray, but a civic duty as well to heed our President’s call to stand in the gap for our nation. Who but God’s people have the ability to enter into the very throne room of Heaven with prayers and petitions?
In 2018, our theme will be Pray for America – UNITY, based upon Ephesians 4:3 which challenges us to mobilize unified public prayer for America, “Making every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.”
Scripture tells us again and again that our fervent prayer is effective. That our loving God responds to His children’s earnest pleas in mighty ways that avail much, and ultimately determine the course of history.
Dr. Ronnie Floyd, President, National Day of Prayer Task Force, 2018 Prayer for our nation.
Our Dear Heavenly Father, while we come to You in complete humility, we also come to You with boldness in the authoritative name of Your One and Only Son, Jesus Christ, who is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. In Jesus’ name, fill us now with Your Holy Spirit and lead us as we pray in Jesus’ name for America.
Oh God, we are burdened for our nation today. We turn from the sins that we have committed against your Word and your Name. We turn away from our contentious words and ways toward one another that has led us to division and polarization. We turn away from our disrespect and lack of dignity toward each other, and we turn away from our continual devaluation of all human life from the womb until death in this world. We also turn away from and refuse to participate in skepticism, criticism, and cynicism in our nation. We turn away from anything that divides us, and we run toward the gospel of Jesus Christ that is the only thing that has the power to unite us together.
Lord, in this critical hour in our nation, we pray for unity in America. Only You can bring unity, harmony, and oneness in America. As your Word calls us in Ephesians 4:3, “Making every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace”, we ask You to empower us to make every effort to live in unity, to call for unity, and to forward unity in America continually.
We pray for the churches in America to unify in Jesus Christ and to pray as one unified spiritual family for America. May Your Church pray for America passionately, perpetually, privately, and publicly.
We pray for God’s power to unify families, workplaces, communities, and cities in America. By Your Spirit, lead us to forgiveness, reconciliation, healing, and unity.
We pray for people of all ethnicities and races in America to come together as one, living in peace and unity together. Oh Lord, because each of us is created in Your image, please give us the courage to stand against all racial and ethnic division, denouncing it as evil and sinful, while simultaneously coming together in unity with all persons knowing this is God’s will for us.
We pray in unity for the security of our nation. We ask You to preserve the United States of America from the forces of evil that are threatening our lives and our future. God, please guard all persons in public and private settings from anyone or anything that desires to harm us or take our lives. Our future is in Your hands.
We agree clearly, unite visibly, and pray extraordinarily for the next Great Spiritual Awakening in America. Oh Lord, wake up Your church spiritually and convict Your people to agree clearly, unite visibly, and pray extraordinarily until the next Great Spiritual Awakening occurs in our generation.
Oh God, we stand together upon Your words in Psalm 133:1, “How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in harmony.” Through Jesus’ name and by the Holy Spirit’s power, we pray for all Americans to unify and to live together in unity.
In the mighty and majestic name of Jesus Christ who is the Only Savior and the Only Hope in this world, we pray. Amen.
LEAP of FAITH Group, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to “set the sail” for revival and reform in Northeast Wisconsin.” It was born out of one special event – Leap of Faith Lambeau on 7-7-07, but God wasn’t done with us at the end of that call to repentance. If something’s happening in the Christian Community in Northeastern Wisconsin, in most cases LEAP of FAITH Group, Inc. is involved, often times it’s the catalyst that helps make it happen. We connect people to help and help people to connect; it’s as simple as that. So when approached to take over the reins of coordinating the local observance of the National Day of Prayer, it was a quick “Yes” when we asked God for guidance. [read more=”Read more…”]
The ministry may have started with Leap of Faith Lambeau, but since then, God has accomplished so much – more than 120 ministries have been helped through the Leap of Faith Group; and 17 of those ministries are currently housed at the Christian Community Center. Massive movements of bringing the body of Christ together have happened, are happening and are about to happen. As Leap of Faith took small steps out, God intricately wove together so many things in this community, tying the past with the present and giving glimpses into the future… A future where we see a Lambeau II — God is putting the pieces together right now for a call to repentance for our city, our state and our nation![/read]
And There’s More… A Vision for Green Bay: The LEAP of FAITH Group, Inc. ministry is focused entirely on living 2 Chron. 7:14, “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” Our efforts are focused on prayer, discipleship and worship as well as evangelism & repentance.[read more=”Read more…”]
Because we are looking for the result of living that Scripture as we await the coming of the Lord, our mission is to set the sail for a move of God in Northeastern Wisconsin. God is coming, it’s our job to get ready. When? We don’t know. We feel like Noah when God told him to build an ark although he’d never seen rain. This much we do know: a move of God always begins in prayer, it continues in prayer, it’s maintained in prayer and it’s protected in prayer. It’s why we focus so much on prayer: community prayer, intercession and individual prayer. And it’s why we now are humbled and honored to host the National Day of Prayer Green Bay initiative. Won’t you join us on May 3?[/read]
