This is the 70th year of observing the National Day of Prayer in the United States. Kathy Branzell, President of the National Day of Prayer Task Force, said, “Decades later, America still needs our prayers. We need to be praying for all people, every day, because people are still in need. First and foremost, people need to hear the message and experience the love of our Lord Jesus Christ. All have sinned and fall short, but God’s arm is not short, and we have been sent to show and share His message of LOVE, LIFE, and LIBERTY.”
