66th annual National Day of Prayer
On Thursday, May 3 Faith Lutheran Church, LCMS, Eldersburg will commemorate the 66th annual National Day of Prayer, “Pray for America – Unity” based on Ephesians 4:3, “Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.” The church will hold an open house from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., providing prayer stations, an evangelism table with handouts, and light refreshments. At noon the Pastor will join other religious leaders of many faiths throughout the nation by simultaneously reading a special prayer. Shortly after the prayer service is complete, there will be a free showing of the movie, “The Case for Christ.” This is a true story of investigative journalist Lee Strobel who sets out to disprove his wife’s newfound Christian faith, and in so doing, finds historical evidence of Jesus and in turn, his own faith..
On April 17, 1952 President Harry S. Truman signed a bill proclaiming an official National Day of Prayer. Traditionally each year the current president signs a proclamation, encouraging all Americans to pray on that day.
