National Day of Prayer
The 65th annual National Day of Prayer, May 5, 2016, will have profound significance for our country. It is an unprecedented opportunity to see the Lord’s healing and renewing power made manifest as we call on citizens to humbly come before His throne.
Our theme for 2016 is Wake Up America, emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to return to the God of Fathers in reverence for His Holy Name. To further highlight our theme, we’ve chosen Isaiah 58:1a as our Scripture for this year: “Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet.”
This year, Nebraska Family Alliance is hosting a prayer observance right in our State Capitol. Join us!
Thursday May 5, 2016
12:00 – 1:00pm
State Capitol Warner Chamber
1445 K St. Lincoln, NE 68509
If you’d like to organize a National Day of Prayer event in your own town, the National Day of Prayer Task Force provides a variety of resources that equip you to organize and publicize prayer gatherings, citywide prayer breakfasts, worship services, and rallies. These materials also present creative ideas geared toward helping individuals and families to establish meaningful devotional times.

May the Lord’s peace fill your heart as you rest in Him throughout the days ahead.
