You are invited to be a part of the Oak Ridge National Day of Prayer Community Event as we gather together to fervently pray for our nation and our community. This year’s event theme is “One Voice United in Prayer,” taken from Romans 15:6.
The service will be at Glenwood Baptist Church on May 1 at 6 p.m., located at 200 N. Alabama Road. Each year, this event brings believers together from congregations all over the Oak Ridge community to demonstrate the power of unity to pray for those in authority and various vocations.
We encourage all believers to come and join as we gather in one accord lift our hearts and voice declaring the plan and purposes of God.
For a number of years, Pastor Mark Walton has supported the National Day of Prayer event with his heartfelt participation along with his congregation opening their hearts and doors to host the 2014 Oak Ridge National Day of Prayer Community Event.
It is important to know that, as you pray, God hears your petition.
1 John 5:14-15 shares this thought clearly: “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he hears us: And if we know that he hears us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.”
We are asking area pastors for their support by allowing the Oak Ridge National Day of Prayer Team to bring bulletin inserts or posters to their ministries beginning the week of April 21.
We encourage individuals who attend a congregation in the Oak Ridge and surrounding areas, and would like to represent your church by volunteering in the pre-service prayer times, to contact the NDP Prayer Team at [email protected].
We appreciate your commitment and value your place as a pray-er in the body of Christ. We ask for your prayers as we draw close for the gathering of this event.
James 5:26 says, “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” We are looking forward to gathering, seeing, and praying with you in this timely event.
