2019 National Day of Prayer

The U.S. Congress has designated the first Thursday in May as an annual National Day of Prayer (NDP). This year marks the 68th annual Day of Prayer, which will be observed Thursday, May 2, 2019. The theme for the 2019 NDP is, Love One Another, based upon Jesus’ charge to His disciples as recorded in the scriptures (John 13:34).

President Trump and all 50 governors are signing proclamations designating May 2 as a day of prayer, and requesting that citizens of all faiths pray for our nation. It is expected that more than two million people will be participating in some 50,000 public prayer gatherings around the nation, including a televised prayer event at the Cannon Building in Washington, DC.

Here in the greater Fort Hood area, prayer activities will begin Saturday, April 27, with a motorcycle prayer ride from Freedom Road Biker Church in Belton, followed by a Citywide Prayer and Worship service at Kingdom Life Church in downtown Killeen. Then, on Wednesday, May 1, there will be a citywide youth prayer gathering at Greater Vision Community Church in Killeen.

Numerous prayer events will then be taking place throughout the day on Thursday, May 2, the official observance of the 2019 National Day of Prayer. Folks will be able to choose times and locations that best suit their schedules. Some of the prayer events will even include a free meal or snack.

We especially want to invite everyone to attend one of the many citywide noon events, as well as one of the regional evening prayer and worship events taking place at First United Methodist Church in Nolanville, and at the Bell County Expo Center in Belton.
