Partnering in Prayer for America


May 3, 2021

This Thursday, May 6, marks the 70th annual National Day of Prayer. Created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman, the National Day of Prayer observance encourages Christians to unite publicly and pray for our nation.

This year's theme is "Lord Pour Out Your Love, Life, and Liberty" based on 2 Corinthians 3:17 (NIV), "Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom." Believers across America will gather to seek the Lord in personal repentance and in intercession for the advancement of the gospel, restoration of families, promotion of biblical values in government policies, commitment to truth in the media, protection of our children in the education system, God's blessings on our economy, and more.

We encourage you to set aside time to observe this day of prayer with your family, church, or community. You can also tune in Thursday evening, May 6th at 8:00 p.m. ET to the national broadcast that will be livestreamed from the Museum of the Bible here in Washington, D.C.

As you know, {dear_name}, the crises America faces are not merely political our cultural, but spiritual. That's why in addition to participating in the National Day of Prayer, Family Research Council produces numerous other resources year-round to equip the church to pray and take action to shift our culture for Christ.

First, we encourage you to join us this Wednesday evening at 8:00 p.m. ET for a special Pray Vote Stand broadcast as we pray for the nation, share analysis from a biblical worldview on the pressing issues of the day, and discuss how you can put your faith into action. Visit prayvotestand.org to tune into the broadcast and find additional helpful materials like our prayer guide.

Additionally, we hope you will join us on a journey through the Scriptures using our Stand on the Word two-year chronological Bible reading plan. Visit frc.org/Bible to sign-up to receive daily Scripture readings and thought-provoking discussion questions.

The entire team at FRC is thankful that you are partnering with us as we strive daily to advance faith, family, and freedom.

If you have friends who you know would be blessed to join FRC in prayer, Bible reading, or more, please encourage them to sign-up to receive these prayer team emails and other communications at frc.org/connect.

We're all stronger when we stand together. May God bless you for your faithful service to Him, may He answer our united prayers, and may we see America turn back to God. Thank you!
