National Day of Prayer- Held by Maroa Methodist Church

Event Date: May 05, 2022 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

Significance of the National Day of Prayer

The National Day of Prayer has great significance for us as a nation as it enables us to recall and to teach the way in which our founding fathers sought the wisdom of God when faced with critical decisions. It stands as a call for us to humbly come before God, seeking His guidance for our leaders and His grace upon us as a people. The unanimous passage of the bill establishing the National Day of Prayer as an annual event, signifies that prayer is as important to our nation today as it was in the beginning.

Meet us at the City Hall Flagpole at noon on May 5.
