National Day of Prayer Largest Ever

news leader.jpgThe 65th annual National Day of Prayer (NDP) on May 5 was observed in a variety of ways across the nation. In Washington, D.C., the NDP Task Force facilitated several events on Capitol Hill. 

Shirley Dobson was honored for 25 years of service as the chair of the NDP Task Force. After assuming the leadership role from Vonette Bright in 1991, the movement has grown to include thousands of observances across the nation.

Dobson then announced Anne Graham Lotz as her successor as the new chair of the NDP Task Force. Lotz is an author, speaker, and founder and president of AnGeL Ministries.

“For the past several years, God has burdened my heart with His message to call His people to repentance, revival, and a recommitment to serious prayer,” says Lotz. “Now I’m on tiptoe in my spirit, filled with expectancy to see what God will do.”

More than 47,000 NDP gatherings took place from coast to coast. President Barack Obama and all 50 state governors unanimously called on Americans to pray. In addition, an estimated 90 nations participated. It was the largest national day of prayer observance in modern era. Next year’s National Day of Prayer will be on May 4.
