It is once again time for Americans to unite and pray! This year with the Covid-19 crisis our annual nation observance will not be held on the courthouse lawn. However, we are excited to announce that we will observe The 69th Annual National Day of Prayer!
First Baptist Mena has setup a Facebook page, Polk County AR – National Day of Prayer and the event is called Virtual National Day of Prayer – Polk County, AR and will be published on Thursday, May 7th at noon until 1:00pm.. There will be links to the categories of prayer with an area pastor praying for each specific one:
Church – Russell Threet, First Baptist Mena
Government – Lamar Austin, Grace Bible
Family – Victor Rowell, The Crossing
Education – Steve Ellison, Salem Baptist
Business – Mark Lyle, Mena Church of God
Military – Ron Tilley, First Assembly of God
Media – Grant Geiger, Cherry Hill Baptist
The National Day of Prayer coordinators are planning a broadcast that will take place that evening from 7:00 – 9:00pm CT. It will also be broadcast, streamed and posted in many ways including their website, seen Live on their Facebook page and cross-posted by many of their ministry partners. It can be viewed on television on GodTV, Daystar, NLC, and Brio TV, with more stations to come, and on radio through Moody and Bott Radio Networks.
The 2020 theme is Across the Earth, Habakkuk 2:14 (NIV), “For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.” The National Day of Prayer Task Force President, Kathy Branzell, said this, “Unprecedented times call for unprecedented prayer! This year’s ‘virtual’ National Day of Prayer Observance may have more prayer – and more ‘pray-ers’ than ever before!”
Please join us Thursday, May 7th at 12:00 noon on Facebook and then again at 7:00pm for the Live Broadcast.
