National Day Of Prayer



Today is National Day of Prayer and I was asked to post
this information on my blog. I think it's self explanatory,
so I've copied and pasted it from the original email,
just as it was sent to me.AS FAMILIES ACROSS THE U.S. STRUGGLE WITH THE ECONOMIC CRISIS,

NATION’S LEADING ONLINE PRAYER WALL TOPS 100,000 PRAYERS
FOR MILLIONS FACING JOB & HOME LOSS, SWINE FLU &
MILLIONS OF OTHERS IN NEED

in 58th annual National Day of Prayer via Online Prayer Rally on May 7th


In the middle of one of the worst recessions in years with millions of families facing the loss of their homes with foreclosures skyrocketing 81% and 6.1 million Americans now out of work – millions of Americans are expected to gather at 35,000 rallies and events across the country from DC to NY to LA - in nearly every major city across the U.S. - on May 7th to pray for those in need, including those hit hardest by the economy, as part of the National Day of Prayer. To kick off this powerful movement originally established by President Truman in 1952 now going strong in its 58th year, the National Day of Prayer Task Force and tangle.com, http://tangle.com/, the nation’s leading family-friendly social network, are providing an opportunity for people across the country to get involved, make their voice heard and show their support right from their own homes and offices by joining the National Online Prayer Rally on May 7. With the click of a mouse on tangle.com’s Prayer Wall, people can provide their fellow Americans with hope and inspiration to go on in these tough times.

tangle.com announced today that it has already attracted more than 100,000 prayers from around the world on its Prayer Wall , setting the world's record as the largest and most popular Prayer Wall on the web. With a nation in crisis, the website has been flooded with prayers for those in need, including numerous prayers for those affected by Swine Flu and for those families facing an uncertain future after losing their homes and jobs. The Prayer Wall features prayers for the U.S. Troops stationed in Iraq as well as video messages from soldiers, including one who speaks first-hand about the realities of war, what he witnessed in Iraq and why he decided to put his life on the line. tangle.com's Prayer Wall also features a multitude of prayers for President Barack Obama as he leads the nation in this crisis and more than 59,000 videos focusing on the President.

More than 3,200 people are expected to gather across Washington DC alone, at a number of high-profile events including a Capitol Hill Observance from 9-12 Noon ET on May 7th which will be lead by Dr. James Dobson and Shirley Dobson of Focus on the Family, Beth Moore, Founder of Living Proof Ministries, former NFL MVP and football legend Shaun Alexander, and Representative Michele Bachmann – MN, District 6.

I'm so glad you posted this reminder Diane. We, and our nation, are so in need of prayer. It is God's people who are called to humble themselves and pray.

Thanks for the reminder.
