National Day of Prayer is next Thursday May 3. Where will you pray? Post on our facebook wall so others from your school, work, or neighborhood can join and make May 3, 2012 a historic day of prayer in Boston! There is also a special opportunity for the public to pray at the State House from 12-1pm.
This is a once-a-year opportunity to support Christian unity, make new friends, and share your faith by example! We hope that prayer gatherings of 2 or more will sprout up in every neighborhood throughout greater Boston and that all 1,700 UniteBoston readers will attend a prayer meetup.
Help us make it happen! Post your neighborhood or workplace with a specific time and location to meet for prayer.
DISCLAIMER: Prayer is LEGAL at the following locations: everywhere in the United States, at coffee houses, on the sidewalk, in your school, in your office, in the parking lot, in the park, and at the State House (see below).
Thank you to Pastor Dave Hill of Abundant Grace Church in Brighton for sharing this inspiring opportunity for National Day of Prayer.
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I wanted to let you know about a special opportunity we all have to pray for our leaders.
Thanks to the favor of God, Room 222 in the State House has been opened for prayer on Thurs, May 3 from Noon-1:00 pm for the National Day of Prayer. The theme this year is Psalm 33:12, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD."
A dynamic Christian woman who became a state representative last fall, Keiko Orrall, asked for a room for the National Day of Prayer and secured this room which is usually used only for Senate meetings.
I think we should take advantage of this opportunity to come and pray at the State House on May 3. I Timothy 2:1 urges us to pray for those in authority, yet most of us do not make this a priority. Since the National Day of Prayer is an annual nationwide event, this is a worthwhile time to act on this Scripture and pray.
Another dynamic believer, Representative Vinny deMacedo, will be inviting legislators to the event and welcoming all who attend. There will be time in the schedule to both recognize and pray for any legislators who respond and attend. This is a wonderful chance for the church in Boston to honor and bless those who rule over us irrespective of party or politics. The legislators usually only come for 5-10 minutes and then get back to work, but it is a significant opportunity for us.
Grace be with us all,
