The 65th Annual National Day of Prayer is Thursday, May5. The chosen theme is Wake Up America!
The selected verse is Isaiah 58:1a:
Shout it aloud, do not hold back.
Raise your voice like a trumpet.
Honorary Chairman Dr. Tony Evans has written a special prayer:
“Dear heavenly Father, we come to You today as a humble people desperate for Your supernatural intervention on behalf of our beloved nation. First, we thank You for all the blessings You have bestowed on our land, blessings that have allowed us to bring so much good and benefit to not only our own citizens but also to the rest of the world. The very ideals upon which this country was founded were based on biblical truths, no matter how some try to rewrite history to deny that very fact today.
There are a number of National Day of Prayer gatherings scheduled throughout the Kinship Christian Radio listening area. They are listed on the Kinship Community Calendar page here http://www.kjly.com/comcal.php
In addition, Kinship Christian Radio will broadcast a two-hour, live concert of prayer from 7-9 p.m. on Thursday, May 5, called One Cry Prayer Summit, Generations United for Awakening. This will include teaching on prayer, interviews with ministry leaders from around the country, and worship music performed from Mariucci Arena in Minneapolis.
Now is the time. We absolutely must wake up and stop being “secret agent Christians,” in Dr. Evan’s words.

Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;
you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I. Isaiah 58:9 NIV
