The National Day of Prayer is an annual event that began in 1952 when President Harry S. Truman signed it into law. Since then, on the first Thursday of May, Christians have gathered in local, state, and national capitals to pray for our nation, our churches, and our leadership.
I would like to invite you to 2 different opportunities to come together with other Christians and neighbors in Chattanooga as we seek God’s presence and renewal in our city and nation.
12:00 – 12:30pm at City Hall
Join us on the front steps of Chattanooga’s City Hall at 101 E. 11 Street with some of our local elected officials and pastors from various churches as we come together during lunch for a time of directed prayer for our city and its leaders as well as our churches.
6:30 – 7:30 at Coolidge Park
Tonight, at 6:30, I hope you will join us for an extended gathering of worship and prayer at Coolidge Park. This is a beautiful day to come together and pray. Worship will be lead by Matthew and Micah McCauley and it is a perfect opportunity to involve your entire family.
This year’s theme is one that I think we all can agree is needed in our nation and our churches…
As we set this day aside for millions of Christians in America to pray, would you commit to setting aside a few minutes to pray with us? Even if you can not attend one of these 2 events, the divisions among us continue to grow.
We are praying for unity among leaders, among churches, church leaders, and Christians around the world as we desperately seek renewal and revival among us.
I will be participating in the prayer at City Hall and our family will be at Coolidge Park as well. I would love you to join us!
