Each year brings new opportunities to champion the cause of prayer and much of the credit goes to a dynamic network of volunteers. Their dedicated efforts within their communities, coupled with a greater focus on the impact of social media, brought the NDP message to more than 700,000 people per week! Approximately 43,000 gatherings resulted. From churches, parks, and civic centers to the Cannon House Office Building in Washington, D.C., millions of men and women raised their hearts and voices before the Lord in a public expression of their religious freedom…and this was just the beginning of one incredible year!
We are excited to announce that Dr. Tony Evans will serve as the 2016 Honorary Chairman of the National Day of Prayer. Dr. Evans is the founder and senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas, founder and president of The Urban Alternative, former chaplain of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, and present chaplain of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks. His radio broadcast, The Alternative with Dr. Tony Evans, can be heard on nearly 1,000 US radio outlets daily and in more than 130 countries.
Dr. Tony Evans has written a special prayer to be simultaneously read throughout the nation at noon (ET) on Thursday, May 5. This recitation will create a huge wave of prayer, flowing from one coast to the other, illustrating the unity of God’s people and acknowledging His dominion over the circumstances facing us.
The 65th annual National Day of Prayer, May 5, 2016, will have profound significance for our country. It is an unprecedented opportunity to see the Lord’s healing and renewing power made manifest as we call on citizens to humbly come before His throne.
