- CCs ENCOURAGE COMMITTING, WITH ONE'S PHYSICAL PRESENCE, AT MACON PUBLIC EVENT, THE POWER OF CORPORATE PRAYER ON THIS DESIGNATED DAY GREATLY KNOWN IN MACON FOR ITS COMUNTIY UNITY! LET'S PRAY FOR CCs TO BE CREATIVE THEMSELVES AND BE VERY AWARE OF GOD'S HELP IN THEIR ROLES! CCs PROMOTE THIS ANNUAL DAY'S SIGNIFICANCE AND THAT GOD IS THE ANSWER FOR EACH OF US!
- CCs’ CONTRIBUTION & NDP SIGNIFICANCE Our Church Coordinators partner with the all-volunteer Macon NDP Committee! NDP is a very special day that comes just once a year! This day serves to unite our hearts in prayer for our nation, for calling on God Who is so much more asounding than we comprehend at first when we come to truly know He meets our every need! NDP affirms us to place our faith in the unfailing character of our Creator Who is sovereign over all governments, authorities, people! NDP can grow in participation and impact every year and meet goals of bringing God glory, pointing Christians and non-Christians to God, our best HOPE!
- HOW ARE CCs SO BENEFICIAL? For quite a few years we have had in place our CC program & try each year to bring more CCs from more churches on board to join for "CERTAIN CONCERTED" efforts! We ask CCs to make aware this annual day is always the first Thursday of May & to literally "Save the Date" on personal calendars to not make doctor and other appointments. CCs promote "Make the Extra Effort it Takes to Commit Idea", like going into work a little earlier and/or staying a little later to make up for any more few minutes the especially planned lunch hour Public Event is (actual Program is carefully timed 30 minutes). The lunch hour could mean planning a carpool from work for co-workers, bringing lunch or getting drive through to eat on way to, or in, Rosa Parks Square. Drivers let off at Rosa Parks and use downtown parking and shuttles partnerships to come back and join group. CCs work with their church office to print Event Fliers (for posting at church and congregation taking to give out) and getting NDP details in church bulletins and newsletters. We see different ways how beneficial Church Coordinators are for our Macon NDP! Whatever else their church may want to do for NDP, planning other time(s) than Midday Public Event emphasizes the NDP community unity. And a terrific help to get some church members to commit to our NDP Public Event is CCs planning carpools from church, taking advantage of the wonderful logistic helps of downtown parking partnerships/church van shuttles to let passengers off at Event Site of Rosa Parks and drivers using parking/shuttles (details on NDP Fliers). Seniors, handicapped, some not familiar with downtown, sweet church fellowhip, taking folding chairs from church are all reasons carpools are inviting, doable, helpful!
- CCs & NDP EVENT CCs help to get the word out there is a National Day of Prayer since 1952, when Congress established an annual day of prayer. And, in 1988, that law was unanimously amended by Congress designating NDP as the first Thursday of May. CCs increase the impact of Prayer and God's moving in hearts! CCs can encourage sharing what is on Macon NDP Facebook (National Day of Prayer - Macon GA) to church and personal FB pages. Asking a younger tech savvy family member to teach, or help do, if don't know how is the way to use this age of technology God has us living in for His glory! Being aware during this day to stop and pray (sometimes with others) are NDP ideas!
- CCs ARE KEY Because the Macon NDP organization is a grassroots non-profit, meeting the expenses of putting on NDP events by the donations of local businesses and individuals, Church Coordinators are our word of mouth “advertisements”. Motivation to be part of NDP is all around us, with the challenges in America and in the world! Prayer is for our nation's better future! Church Coordinators are key to help their pastors for this amazingly powerful gift from our Heavenly Father of prayer to be used, know brings answers, be loved!
- We need a committed Church Coordinator in every church in our area! If you do not know who that person is in your church already (who should be a lay person, one other than on church staff), ask God would He identify one to you in your church, or two if our church is large!? If God is identifying to you (or that it is you), contact James Lewis of our NDP Committee who will reach out to that lady or gentleman (or talk with you)!

INVESTING IN HOPE…Transforming our nation through prayer!
