The Importance of Pastors and Churches Leading the Way in Prayer

The churches in America are God’s footprints in our nation. God’s churches are blessed and anointed by Him, and the greatest network our nation has for prayer and the advancement of the gospel of Jesus Christ. 350,000+ churches and 200 denominations have the opportunity to impact America on one day in 2019: The National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 2.


As the president of the National Day of Prayer and senior pastor of a local church, I am convinced that we cannot complete our mission of mobilizing unified public prayer for America without the support of the pastors and churches in America. Additionally, each denomination and network of churches can be involved in advancing the Kingdom of God together, which far surpasses our own church and denomination. If there is any one day annually that we can work together for the greater good of God’s Kingdom, it can be the annual National Day of Prayer, which is the first Thursday of May annually.

Our priority must be to mobilize pastors, churches, and denominations to pray for America.

Will You Enter Your Community and Participate?

Pastors and churches, will you enter your community individually or even together, to join us in praying for America on Thursday, May 2, 2019?

Imagine with me for a moment: What would happen if each pastor and church in America established a prayer service or observance on the National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 2, 2019? It would become the most prayed-for day in America.

Each pastor, church, or denomination can do any one of these options:

  • Connect with and mobilize your church to an existing observance somewhere in your community.
  • Create a new observance in your community in order to mobilize more people to pray for our nation.
  • Realize you can create as many observances in your community as desired and there will still not be enough of these to mobilize your entire community to pray for America.

On each National Day of Prayer, there should be no less than 100,000 gatherings for prayer nationally, due to pastors, churches, and denominations leading the way or working together for the greater good of God’s Kingdom. Every Christ follower should want to take an hour on the National Day of Prayer to pray for America in a public prayer worship observance.
