Harvest Helps Lead National Day of Prayer
For decades now, the National Day of Prayer, on the first Thursday of May, has been a very special day for the Church in the United States. There really is nothing quite like it. In 2011 there were more than 40,000 prayer events on that day. Millions of Christians gathered in churches, homes, City Halls, and State Houses to honor the Lord and to seek Him on behalf of the nation.
Like most prayer ministries, Harvest Prayer Ministries whole heartedly encourages Christians to participate and join in one of these observances in their area. But as a ministry we are closely tied to the National Day of Prayer. Our founder, Dave Butts, has served as Chairman of the Board of Directors for the National Day of Prayer Task Force for the past 9 years. Vice Presidents Jon Graf and Kim Butts (also co-founder) serve on the board of directors for the NDOP as well.
On a typical first Thursday in May, you will find Dave on Capitol Hill in Washington DC. Along with NDOP Task Force Chairperson Shirley Dobson and the Honorary Chairman (this year it’s Dr. David Jeremiah), Dave helps provide leadership for the very special 3-hour prayer service held in one of the Congressional Office Buildings. Most years, he leads in a prayer time for the Executive Branch of the U.S. Government.
Supporters of Harvest Prayer Ministries have the satisfaction of knowing that they are helping the prayer movement in a very special way through Harvest's involvement in leading prayer on behalf of the nation. We hope this May 3rd will find you joining us in prayer for the United States.
