2021 National Day of Prayer

On Thursday, May 6, 2021, America observed the 70th annual National Day of Prayer.

All across the nation, millions of people gathered for worship and prayer in city halls, county courthouses, parks, businesses and houses of worship.

Here in the greater Fort Hood area, NDP activities began Saturday, May 1, with a special prayer rally at the Cathedral of Deliverance and Praise in Harker Heights, which was followed by daily prayer meetings on Fort Hood, coordinated by the Men of Honor Ministry.

On Wednesday, May 5, Greater Vision Community Church hosted their annual pre-NDP citywide youth-led prayer service.
