We welcome all believers to join us for the Judeo-Christian expression of the 66th National Day of Prayer, which will be observed nationally on Thursday, May 4, 2017.
Our local prayer gathering will take place in Ansonia at the Veterans’ Memorial Park adjacent to City Hall, 253 Main St., from 6 to 7:30 p.m., rain or shine. In case of rain we will meet in the Aldermanic Chambers.
This observance is a result of the joint resolution of the United States Congress in 1952, signed into law by President Harry S. Truman, and the declaration was amended in 1988 by both Houses of Congress and signed by President Ronald Reagan, setting the permanent date for the National Day of Prayer on the first Thursday in May each year. Prayer gatherings will be taking place all day and evening throughout our nation.
The 2017 theme is: “FOR YOUR GREAT NAME’S SAKE! HEAR US…FORGIVE US…HEAL US!” Scripture Reference: Daniel 9:19.
The main purpose of this event is for believers to join in one accord as we repent, intercede, and seek God’s face and His wisdom. We will be praying for the Seven Centers of Influence: Government, Military, Media, Business, Education, Church, Family, and also Israel. The specific prayer topics are preassigned, but there will be a moment of silence for personal intentions following each segment.
The Governor’s Proclamation will be read by the Honorable David Cassetti, Mayor of Ansonia. We are so grateful that each year we have been honored and blessed to have local clergy, congregants, city officials, staff, school administrators, police, veterans, emergency responders, and those who were just walking by join us in prayer.
This is a privilege and responsibility for every believer, especially in these critical times, no matter who we are or what position we hold. It is time to seek the Lord. We hope you will mark your calendar and join us this year!!!
