"One-Thing" Kind of Prayer

After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands.

Revelation 7:9

I believe I had a little glimpse into this verse. Pastors and leaders from Schenectady, New York area gather together for breakfast. They were people from Mainline, Evangelical, Charismatic, Pentecostal and various different ethnic congregations. We gather together to pray specifically preparing for the National Day of Prayer on May 3rd.

What seemed cool about this was that even though many different people from many different backgrounds we had one focus, that was beseeching Jesus on behalf of Schenectady, the Capital Region, New York State and America. Asking Him to move through our land, especially to draw unbelievers to Himself.

The National Day of prayer is May 3rd. The theme is Pray for America - UNITY, based upon Ephesians 4:3 which challenges us to mobilize unified public prayer for America, "Making every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace."

Go to nationaldayofprayer.org to find a prayer event near you.

Prayer: Lord we need You in America more than ever. Holy Spirit we invite to move over our land. Lord, move in the hearts of Your people. Fill us, enable us to be the ambassadors You created us to be.
