2011 National Day of Prayer
May 5, 2011
A Mighty Fortress is Our God
"I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust." Ps. 91:2
During this time of great uncertainty and turmoil, we must enjoin our neighbors, co-workers and friends to lay aside differences and come together for a day of prayer for our nation. Neither political nor partisan, the National Day of Prayer is a solemn occasion to seek favor of Almighty God on behalf of the United States of America.
2011 National Prayer
Joni Eareckson Tada, 2011 Honorary Chairman
Almighty God, you are our Mighty Fortress, our refuge and the God in whom we place our trust. As our nation faces great distress and uncertainty, we ask your Holy Spirit to fall afresh upon your people - convict us of sin and inflame within us a passion to pray for our land and its people. Grant the leaders of our county an awareness of their desperate need of wisdom and salvation in You until sin becomes a reproach to all and righteousness exalts this nation.
Protect and defend us against our enemies and may the cause of Christ always prevail in our schools, courts, homes, and churches. Lord God, send a spirit of revival and may it begin in our own hearts. Remember America, we pray. Remember the foundations on which this country was built. Remember the prayers of our nation's fathers and mothers, and do not forget us in our time of need. In the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ, Amen.
