65TH ANNUAL NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER TO BE HELD IN ANSONIA
Event Scheduled for Thursday, May 5, 2016, 6:00pm-7:30pm
ANSONIA- We invite all who have a love for the Lord Jesus Christ and wish to pray for our nation, to join us for the Judeo-Christian expression of the 65th annual National Day of Prayer, to be held on Thursday, May 5, 2016. Valley residents and their families are invited to answer the call of prayer from 6:00pm to 7:30pm at Veteran’s Memorial Park, located adjacent to Ansonia City Hall at 253 Main Street.
The National Day of Prayer is an expression of the Judeo-Christian faith that was first designated in 1952. The theme for 2016 is Wake Up America, emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to return to the God of Fathers in reverence for His Holy Name.
To further highlight this theme, event organizers have chosen Isaiah 58:1a as our Scripture for this year: “Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet.” The prayer for the nation was written by Dr. Tony Evans, 2016 Honorary Chairman, and will be read at each prayer event occurring across the country.
The main purpose of this event is to be in one accord as we repent, intercede, ask forgiveness, and seek God’s wisdom. We will be praying for the Seven Centers of Influence: Government, Military, Media, Business, Education, Church, Family, and we have added Israel. The Governor’s Proclamation for the National Day of Prayer will be read by the Honorable David Cassetti, Mayor of Ansonia.
Prayer gatherings will take place all day and evening throughout our nation. Last year there were more than 43,000. This is a privilege and responsibility for every believer, especially in these critical times, no matter who we are or what position we hold. It is time to seek the Lord.
This is the fifth year that we will be holding the National Day of Prayer observance in Ansonia. We are so grateful that each year we have been honored to have Clergy and congregants from local churches, city officials, police, veterans, emergency responders, and so many others, make time to pray with us.
The National Day of Prayer will take place rain or shine (believing for “shine”). We hope you and your family will mark your calendar and join us this year!
