For the second year Sasakwa First Baptist Church is hosting a National Day of Prayer for the Ada-Sasakwa-Seminole area.
The service is Thursday, May 3, from 7-8 p.m. in the church sanctuary.
The service is open to churches and individuals who wish to participate in the service that is designed to focus on serious intercessory prayer for the nation. This service is one of many scheduled nationwide for Americans recognizing its 61st National Day of Prayer.
Many churches encourage people to come into the sanctuary to pray throughout the day and into the evening. An official State Capitol Prayer Service is scheduled from noon to 1 p.m. May 3 on the second floor of the Capitol Rotunda. A major focus will be to pray to God to send revival and spiritual awakening throughout our nation. It will be an inspirational event to join Oklahoma’s top leaders in government, in health care, in the military, in businesses, educators and many families to pray for the state’s and the nation’s needs.
Like last year, a prayer guide will be used to cover several pertinent topics in keeping with the words of President Abraham Lincoln who, along with a war-torn land said, “…it is the duty of nations as well as of men to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions in humble sorrow yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon. Moreover, it is necessary to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by history that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord…”
With moral conditions at an all-time low, exploding national debt and a critical election, this year has unusual significance. The nation’s founders exhibited a strong and abiding example of dependence on the God Who enabled the Founders to form this nation.
