Commit to May 2, 2024 Macon NDP
…and to praying every day for our country and its leaders! Would you tell others to check our website and like and share our Facebook page National Day of Prayer - Macon GA for raising awareness of NDP and being creative all year long to initiate impromptu, and planned, "prayer minutes" with family, friends, co-workers, etc.?
National Day of Prayer is always the first Thursday of May! It was 1988 Congress unanimously passed which day of the year NDP would be commemorated for the 1952 law to have a national, annual day of prayer! We know when NDP is! So we can mark our calendars to "save the date" and make a pledge to ourselves and to God we will make the arrangements necessary to be part of this once-a-year community day of solidarity to be part of our Macon Area NDP!
IN MACON WE HAVE IN PLACE A WONDERFUL, ONCE-A-MONTH OPPORTUNITY OF A PRAYER TIME ON THE LUNCH HOUR where we can pray for local, state, and national elected and appointed government officials by name! It is EVERY 2ND WEDNESDAY AT THE MACON-BIBB GOVERNMENT CENTER, ROOM 205, NOON TO 1 PM. Come for the time you can be there to join in this particular, connecting monthly prayer! IF YOU JOIN US BY PHONE, IT IS FREE CONFERENCE CALL 978 990-5000 AND ENTER AT THE PROMPT 691214#. We are offered parking by nearby St. Joseph's Catholic Church in their corner lot to the left of their church front. If you would like a 2nd Wed. email reminder (sent BCC), just email Macon NDP@gmail.com
We need to put into practice more the discipline of this gift and miracle-working resource of prayer God gave us! Pray more, read our Bibles more, stand up for what is right more, “go out of our way” more to say, “God bless you!”! God loves us each enough to give His only Son for our sin payment and cares for us each deeply! Go to bsfinternational.org for the Macon area Bible Study Fellowship groups from Labor Day to first of May, where children and grandchildren have their lessons with you on their level.
The slogans of one of our founding fathers for NDP in Macon “It’s not about a day…it’s about a discipline” AND of the NDP Task Force “Investing in hope…transforming our nation through prayer!” are very meaningful and true! It is way past time for Christians to fully acknowledge in their hearts and heads that the work and delights of prayer bring amazing results!
Prayer enables us to live out the gospel message before others to impact their decisions to seek God and to be bold for what the Bible says and not what our culture drift advances—away from God and His Word! We see in answers to prayer that nothing is impossible for God, even changing hearts as only He can do!
Pastors, know that NDP is not only a multi-church, multi-denominational, multi-ministry day of unity but a day to strongly promote among your people for it is the law of the land, a day upon which everyone can agree. NDP transcends differences and brings citizens together from all backgrounds, languages, ethnicities. We encourage churches to promote beng part of the Macon NDP Observance by scheduling on NDP any meeting, prayer walk, being open for coming to church to pray, etc. to be other than the official Macon NDP Observance Event. Then this significant day every year to seek God together for corporate prayer advances even more a conjoining, community-wide commitment of concentrated prayer. And Pastors, with you so busy, please identify to our NDP Committee Church Coordinator Identifier, James Lewis, which lay person(s) in your congregation can be your one, or two, Church Coordinator(s) to promote NDP and 2nd Wed. Monthly Prayer Noon-1 pm, on the lunch hour at Macon-Bibb Gov't. Center for the Macon Monthly Prayer opportunity!
Please be part of the next National Day of Prayer! And "Pray On" every day!
