Atmore Marks National Day Of Prayer (With Gallery)

A Christian flag at the National Day of Prayer event in Great Falls Thursday

"It's to focus on giving God glory".

This attractive verse from Daniel 9 reflects the theme - For Your Great Name's Sake! The theme is based on scripture from Daniel. "That's what we pray about in the name of Jesus, that he would bring us together to bring all of our unique talents and differences and everything to work together for him".

"The way that we change that is by being the people who God meant us to be", Barnes said.

"This community and this nation has challenges that we have never seen before". "I've had many experiences in life that it was good that I've had that confidence that I could go to my Christ and have prayer and get through those turmoil's".

Lawton's Mayor Fred Fitch who spoke at the prayer breakfast said he observes the national day of prayer 365 days a year.

- Always rejoice. Pray without ceasing. I pray our generation will not die before seeing and experiencing it. But as I heard recently, you can still pray in school. "I'm glad to be a part of it this year and plan to do so for all the years to come". It is a great time of unity among the churches.

"It's something that's very close and personal to me", said Fitch. "We all need to be together and coming together for prayer is flawless". God hears and answers the prayers of His children.

The National Day of Prayer was first observed by members of the Continental Congress in 1775. Like Thanksgiving or Christmas, this day has become a national observance placed on all Hallmark calendars and observed annually across the nation. The founding fathers may have been sure about separating church and state, but they also believed in a higher power and the effect of prayers. Hymns were also sung together.

If you can not attend, take a moment to say a little prayer wherever you may be. Those written prayers were then posted around the auditorium for people to read during the service and join them in those prayers.

Since 1952, Americans have gathered to pray for the country on the first Thursday of May. People from varying socio-economic, political, and ethnic backgrounds unite in prayer across the nation.

"We are really praying for a better society", Janzen said.

"In response, millions will assemble at thousands of local events across the nation, where they will take time out of their daily schedules to intercede on behalf of their communities, their nation, and their leaders".
