National Day Of Prayer
THURSDAY, MAY 6TH
Millions of Americans will unite in prayer at thousands of events from coast to coast to observe the National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 6th. The theme for this year is “Prayer for Such a Time as This” and is based on the verse from Nahum 1:7 which states: “The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him.”
The Batavia Assembly of God Church, located at 24 North Spruce Street in Batavia, will open its doors for the National Day of Prayer on Thursday May 6th beginning at 6:30 a.m. and will remain open until 6:00p.m. Prayer stations will be set up to guide and assist you through prayer. We invite you to join us.
There will be a Bible Study with a prayer emphasis on Wednesday night, May 5th, starting at 7:00 p.m. Help us to pray earnestly for our families, our communities, and our churches. Let us pray for our President and all of our leaders who govern, that they will humble themselves and seek God’s guidance so that everything they do will shine the light of His glory in a darkened world.
President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed that our nation should set apart a day for national prayer to confess our sins and transgressions in sorrow, “yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon… announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.”
May our prayers as a people and a nation be heard and blessed for such a time as this.
