The National Day of Prayer (NDP) Tacoma, as part of the National Day of Prayer Task Force, is gearing up for our annual event on the 1st Thursday in May from Noon-1:00 pm at Cheney Stadium (south gate parking lot). This year the national observance in on Thursday, May 2, 2013 and the theme is "Pray for America" based on the scripture Matthew 12:21, "In His name the nations will put their hope". The first NDP Tacoma event sponsored by Inspiration Bible Church was held in 2007. Since then, NDP Tacoma has continued to grow and increase with many individuals and groups participating.
"We have seen protection take place in this area as a result of our local National Day of Prayer. When a nation acknowledges God, prosperity follows", says Pastor Greg from Inspiration Bible Church.
On May 2, 2013, many believers from Washington will be gathering together at Cheney Stadium parking lot to pray under a tent for the 7 pillars of America: 1) Government 2) Military/First Responders 3) Media/Entertainment 4) Business 5) Education 6) Church 7) Family.
There are designated individuals who will be praying such as military personnel, police officers, chaplains, business leaders, medical professionals, pastors, educators, athletes, and government officials. With praise music going up, this powerful one hour of time will continue to make a difference as we pray for our nation and Washington State!
