SAVE THE DATE: The National Day of Prayer

The COVID-19 crisis was a challenge none of us expected… but God has not forgotten us. He invites our prayers and is with us in this storm.

After such an unsettling, even frightening, start to the year, many of us are urgently praying. And God promises that as we pray, He will heal our land. (See 2 Chron. 7:14.) Our founding fathers recognized the power of praying for our nation, and even as early as 1775, called for a special day to pray. The National Day of Prayer was later signed into law as an annual event.

Be a part of this wonderful legacy and start by praying today.

Stand united with others as you pray for our nation, our city and those in need right here in Northern New Jersey. Join us in praying on the National Day of Prayer on May 7, 2020.
