National Day of Prayer is May 5

On Thursday, May 5, millions will assemble at thousands of local National Day of Prayer events across the nation, taking time out of their daily schedules to intercede on behalf of their communities, their nation, and their leaders. Although Westfield will not have a formal event, the church will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for you to stop in anytime for prayer. Prayer resources will be available. We also will be sending hourly prayer prompts to our email list and posting on facebook. Please join us!

The theme for the 2016 National Day of Prayer is “Wake Up America,” which emphasizes the need for every citizen to wake up to the reality of the challenges that our nation faces and to call upon the unfailing character of God, who is sovereign over all governments, authorities, and men.

To further highlight this theme, event organizers have selected as the Scripture for this year Isaiah 58:1a, which states: “Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet.”
