National Day of Prayer May 4
AFA initiatives, Christian activism, News briefs

May 2017 – AFA’s annual Meet at City Hall prayer observance is set for the National Day of Prayer, May 4, from 12:20 to 12:40 p.m.

At city halls across the country, individuals will gather to pray for a spiritual awakening in our country.

Christians can easily organize their own Meet at City Hall gathering. Of course, anyone can simply show up and pray. However, if a more organized event is desired – say, one that would require a sound system – a city permit might be necessary but should be easy to obtain.

AFA suggests you invite members of your Sunday school class or church to join together and organize the Meet at City Hall event. Public officials, local pastors, and church choirs, for example, can be invited to participate.

“Morally and spiritually, our nation faces challenging days,” said AFA president Tim Wildmon. “The people of God must press in to pray and seek the Lord for His forgiveness and mercy.”

This year’s theme is “For Your Great Name’s Sake,” based on Daniel 9:19 – “O Lord, hear! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, listen and take action! For Your own sake, O my God, do not delay, because Your city and Your people are called by Your name” (NASB).
