Ministerial Alliance hosts National Day of Prayer

CLAREMORE — The Claremore Ministerial Alliance will host the 63rd annual observance of the National Day of Prayer this week.

Scheduled for Thursday, May 1, the National Day of Prayer will be recognized at noon at Ne-Mar Center in Claremore.

 “As our Nation struggles with continued economic insecurity, vast healthcare reform, and countless challenges to our constitutional rights, citizens of the United States are preparing to exercise their freedom to gather, worship, and pray,” said local pastor Mark Hiehle, Claremore Church of the Nazarene.

The National Day of Prayer predates the founding of the United States of America as the Continental Congress proclaimed in 1775 setting aside a day of prayer.  

In 1952, Congress established an annual day of prayer and in 1988, that law was amended, designating the

National Day of Prayer as the first Thursday in May.

“As God called to the Nation of Israel in 2 Chronicles 7:14, to return to Him, so America is called to heed that same call: ‘If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face, turn from their wicked ways, then, I will hear from Heaven and forgive their sin and will heal their land’.”

The Claremore Area Ministerial Alliance’s locally-hosted National Day of Prayer will be 12-1 p.m. The public is invited to come and lift up the city, state and nation in corporate prayer.
