Imagine a state where God is honored, life is cherished, marriages and families thrive, and religious liberty is protected. Prayer is the foundation to ensure that vision in Nebraska. 

Every year, on the first Thursday in May, we observe National Day of Prayer with a prayer service inside the Nebraska State Capitol. At noon on May 4, 2023, Nebraskans from across the state will gather in the State Capitol Rotunda when senators break for lunch to lift up families, the church, businesses, education, the military, government, and the media in prayer.

Please join Nebraska Family Alliance for this historic prayer service with Governor Jim Pillen, Senator John Lowe, Coach Ron Brown, and community leaders from 12:00-12:45 PM on Thursday, May 4, 2023. 

National Day of Prayer is an opportunity for the people of God to unite in prayer for forgiveness, restoration, and guidance. This year’s Nebraska observance is significant as it falls on the cusp of several generational wins for families and life.

In a proclamation declaring Thursday, May 4, 2023, a day of prayer in Nebraska, Governor Jim Pillen wrote, “It is fitting and proper to give thanks to God by observing a day of prayer in Nebraska when all may acknowledge our blessings and express gratitude for them, while recognizing the need for strengthening religious and moral values in our state and nation.”

Since 1988, Congress has set aside the first Thursday of May as a National Day of Prayer. This year’s theme—prayer fervently in righteousness and avail much—is taken from James 5:16, and the state senator sponsor is Senator John Lowe. 

Free street parking may be available on streets surrounding the Capitol, and limited parking can be found at Trinity Lutheran Church (724 S 12th St, Lincoln, NE 68508). The event will be live-streamed on our Facebook page for those unable to attend in person.
