The National Day of Prayer

May 5, 2010

The 59th National Day of Prayer will take place tomorrow, May 6.  Here is a list of prayer requests as an aid to your prayer.

I Timothy 2 1First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, 2 for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. 3This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, 4who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
