Yesterday, National Day of Prayer 2012, Words of my Heart by A Texas Artist Laurie Pace

Yesterday was National Day Of Prayer....I hope if you did not participate this year, you will keep it in your heart and on your calendar for next year.

"The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of 
the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman."

"Our Task Force is a privately funded organization whose purpose is to encourage participation on the National Day of Prayer. It exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families. The Task Force represents a Judeo Christian expression of the national observance, based on our understanding that this country was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the Bible."

Before we moved out to East Texas I can honestly say we never celebrated this day. Removing our lives from the busy city and placing them in the small town brought out the joyful uplifting of our nation and it's people yesterday. We moved here two years ago last month so this is our third time to participate. The power of prayer brings changes to our lives.
