The 63rd Annual National Day of Prayer will be observed on Thursday, May 1, 2014. A Solemn Assembly for Prayer will be observed at 12:00 noon at the Dodge County Courthouse on Thursday, May 1, 2014. Christians across Dodge County are encouraged to participate in this special time of prayer or organize your own prayer group for the day.
The Day of Prayer is an opportunity to see the Lord’s healing and renewing power come to our country as we call on citizens to humbly come before Him in prayer. The National Day of Prayer was established as an annual event in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. The observance of the National Day of Prayer is founded on the constitutional rights of freedom of speech and freedom of religion and can be celebrated by all Americans. The theme for 2014 is One Voice, United in Prayer, emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to place their faith in the unfailing character of their Creator, who is sovereign over all governments, authorities, and men.
