NDOP

 

For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea. Habakkuk 2:14

 

The National Day or Prayer is Thursday, May 7. For most of you who read this when I post it on Wednesday night, that means the National Day of prayer is tomorrow!

 

This is anything but an ordinary NDOP. There were rumors that it wasn’t going to take place at all, but that’s not true. HALLELUJAH!

 

If ever we needed a National Day of Prayer, NOW is the time! If ever there was a time to cry out to the LORD, NOW is that time!

 

I believe the LORD has the attention of large numbers of people right now. I mean, look at the situation: For years, the people organizing the NDOP have told us the seven “mountains” of influence we should pray for are: the Church, the Family, Education, the Media, Government, the Military, and Business.

 

COVID19 has shaken the very foundations of every one of those mountains.

 

Our very society has been shaken to its roots, and I personally do not believe I serve a God of coincidence. I believe something will come out of this, and I do not believe it will leave anyone lukewarm. I pray fervently that out of this pestilence will come a time of awakening, repentance, and revival to His glory! 

 

Kinship Christian Radio will be airing the National Day of Prayer Broadcast on all of our stations from 7-9 p.m. Please do tune in and join brothers and sisters in Christ from across the nation in praying for this country that was founded as “One Nation Under God.”

 

There are a variety of other events going on as well. They can be found here: https://kinshipradio.org/home/national-day-of-prayer-2020/

 

In the meantime, please join me in praying this prayer supplied by Kathy Branzell, President of the National Day of Prayer Task Force:

 

Lord, we exist to give You glory. We exist

because of Your glory, and in Your glory, as

our Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer. We

give you thanks and praise for every breath

and moment You have given to us. We

repent of our sin; for the shameful things

we have done against You and for our

silence when we did not speak up to

proclaim Your Name, profess Your Word,

or protect and practice Your will.

We ask Your forgiveness.

We pray that the knowledge of the glory of

the Lord will spread across our nation and

the entire earth as we seek Your Kingdom

and righteousness; as we walk in

obedience to You, and in humble unity,

love one another. Jesus, the Bible says that

You are “the knowledge of the glory of the

Lord.” You have taught us to pray,

commanded us to love, and commissioned

us to share Your gospel of grace. Your

glory fills our hearts and families, it

overflows into our neighborhoods,

workplaces, campuses, churches,

entertainment, and media. We give thanks

for our military and ask that Your glory

would spread to, and through them as they

preserve freedom around the world. We

pray for our government, that all of our

leaders and laws would be filled with Your

glory, that they would magnify Your Holy

Word and honor Your will and ways. We

pray that Your grace and glory would

spread to bring hope to the hopeless, and

love where there is hurt and hate. God, use

us as we pray your promise, that “the earth

will be filled with the knowledge of the

glory of the Lord as the waters

cover the sea.” In Jesus Name, Amen!

Today’s Praise

The LORD frustrates the plans of the nations

and thwarts all their schemes.

But the LORD’s plans stand firm forever;

his intentions can never be shaken.

What joy for the nation whose God is the LORD,

whose people he has chosen as his inheritance. 

Psalm 33: 10-12 (NLT)
