Unite with your brothers and sisters in Christ to observe the National Day of Prayer at First Baptist Atlanta.
The 64th annual National Day of Prayer, May 7, 2015, will have profound significance for our country. It is an unprecedented opportunity to see the Lord’s healing and renewing power made manifest as citizens are called to humbly come before His throne.
The theme for 2015 is "Lord, Hear Our Cry," emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to place their faith in the unfailing character of their Creator, who is sovereign over all governments, authorities, and men. This year's Scripture is I Kings 8:28, "Hear the cry and the prayer that your servant is praying in your presence this day."
