National Day of Prayer

Thursday, May 3rd will be the 61st Annual Observance of the National Day of Prayer.

"Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord." Psalm 33:12

I have been asked to participate in our county's NDOP by leading the prayer for families.  I hesitantly agreed and now I am getting nervous already.  My hesitance was not heading God's urging, but rather my sheer inaduequecies shining through.  Who am I to lead anyone in a prayer?  I have to believe that God laid my name on the leader's heart, however incompetent I may feel.  I will be spending the next 14 days in prayer that God would speak through me as our town comes together to lift up our country in collective prayer.  

If you are in our area, please stay tuned for more information about the day.  I'll be sure to post as much information as I can .  If you are looking to get involved in your own town, check out this website.

    first, you look AWESOME in red! Holy cow. So pretty.
    second, if you can talk you can pray. period. people make prayer too complicated. it is refreshing to just chat with God out loud. It makes it less imtimdating for the non-prayers if you just keep it simple. Love your blog. :)
