Acts413 Ministries is supporting the 2018 National Day of Prayer in Delaware County
Residents and guests of Delaware County will gather together for the 67th Annual National Day of Prayer at 11:30 AM on Thursday, May 2, 2019 in Rose Tree Park, at Rt. 252 & Rt. 1, under the BIG FLAG. We are very proud to announce this will be our 25th year holding this event.
Anyone is Welcome to come and join with us in prayer. Together we will pray for our country. We will pray specifically for our government, our military, our police, our fire and EMT workers, our churches and clergy, families, marriages, the unborn, our youth, our schools and teachers, the millions who struggle with addictions, our businesses, the media, and for the Peace of Jerusalem.
Many Christian’s are unaware that they live in a nation that has a law in place requiring that 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 1 Timothy 2:1-2, 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!
Our theme this year is, Pray for America - UNITY, based upon Ephesians 4:3, which says, “Making every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.” As the 2018 National Day of Prayer on May 3rd approaches, thousands of individuals, churches, and communities will be working to rally millions of Christian’s to once again heed this call.
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.
To see God move in the hearts of every man, woman and child and that through prayer, God would reconcile our nation to Himself and correct the social ills, affecting our communities.
To provide several county events to bring people of all denominations,ethnic and cultural backgrounds, together for the purpose of honoring God, and seeking His mercy and blessing upon our community, state and nation.
Our theme this year is, Love One Another, taken from John 13:34, which says, “Love one another. Just as I have loved you.” As the 2019 National Day of Prayer on May 2nd approaches, thousands of individuals, churches, and communities will be working to rally millions of Christian’s to once again heed this call.
In 1952, Congress passed a joint resolution, signed by President Truman, establishing the Annual National Day of Prayer. The law was amended in 1988 and signed by President Ronald Reagan, permanently setting the day as the first Thursday of May.
