Many North Carolina Baptists plan to gather for prayer May 3. Recognized as the National Day of Prayer, Baptists will join with others that day to pray for the country and its leaders.
“One Nation Under God” is the theme for the 61st annual observance. Organizers are using Psalm 33:12 – “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord” – as its theme verse. Organized events will be held in thousands of public venues including in North Carolina.
David Jeremiah, founder of Turning Point Ministries and senior pastor of Shadow Community Church in El Cajon, Calif., will be the 2012 honorary chairman of the National Day of Prayer Task Force. He will give the keynote address in Washington, D.C.
