National Day of Prayer

Today is the National Day of Prayer. This year's theme: "Prayer! America's Strength & Shield." The theme is based on Psalm 28:7, which reads in full from the King James Version:

  • The LORD is my strength and shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.

Dr. Ravi Zacharias is the 2008 Honorary Chair of the National Day of Prayer Task Force. He has written this year's "Prayer for Our Nation." Here is the text:

  • Holy Father, in a world where so many are hungry, You have given us food in abundance; In a world where so many are hurting, You offer to bind up our wounds; In a world where so many are lonely, You offer friendship to every heart; In a world longing for peace, You offer hope. Yet, we are so stubborn and resistant. Have mercy upon us, Lord. Our nation is at a crossroads this year; we look to you to be our strength and shield. Please give us the guidance to elect one who will honor you and to respond to the wisdom from above so that our hope may be renewed and our blessings be treasured. In God's holy name.
