The 66th annual National Day of Prayer was observed Thursday, May 4, 2017. The theme for the 2017 NDP was, “For Your GREAT Name’s sake! Hear us… Forgive us… Heal us!” taken from Daniel 9:19, which says, “O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and take action! For Your own sake, O my God…”
President Trump and all 50 governors signed proclamations designating May 4 as a day of prayer, requesting that citizens of all faiths pray for our nation. More than two million people participated in public prayer gatherings around the nation, including prayer events at the White House and the Cannon Building in Washington, DC.
Here in the greater Fort Hood area, many prayer events took place from Sunday, April 30, through Friday, May 5.
We wish to thank all of the volunteer coordinators and participants who helped to make this year’s National Day of Prayer a success.
