Please join us at Shain Park in Birmingham at Noon on Thursday May 4 for the National Day of Prayer

Dr. Henry Blackaby, Honorary Chairman of The National Day of Prayer Task Force Says that
The problem is not with darkness. Darkness can't be anything but dark. The problem is with the light. When light shines into darkness, it dispels the darkness.

2006 Prayer for the Nation

Oh Heavenly Father, You have made Yourself known to us as
a nation by Your mighty works throughout our history.
From the beginning, You have been with us through many wars and conflicts; Your right
arm has saved us. We have
been amazingly and
graciously blessed.

Today, we confess our sin
of not responding to Your
right to rule in our lives and our nation. Too often we have
despised and rejected Your will while imposing our own, and we
are now facing the consequences
of our disobedience.
Draw us back to Yourself
that we may return to Your ways once again.
Without You we can do nothing.
You have promised that if we
honor You, You will once again honor this great nation.

That is our fervent prayer.
For Your honor
and glory we pray,

Dr. Henry Blackaby

The term "Shocking Pictures" used in the series of photos (see below) lost some of its meaning because all the photos are not being presented at one time. The commercial press believes in the phrase "if it bleeds, it leads". Certainly The news from Iraq is terrible, but there are some good things happening there and that's what the pictures we've been running are about-The heart warming, caring stuff.


Here is a math trick.

1. Grab a calculator. (you won't be able to do this one in your head)
2. Key in the first three digits of your phone number (NOT the area code)
3. Multiply by 80
4. Add 1
5. Multiply by 250
6. Add the last 4 digits of your phone number
7. Add the last 4 digits of your phone number again.
8. Subtract 250
9. Divide number by 2
Do you recognize the answer?

This is pretty nifty. Back by popular request The 25% of the people who clicked on this site were very enthusiastic about the information so we are hoping that the other 75% will try it this week.

    About The National Day of Prayer
    The National Day of Prayer tradition predates the founding of the United States of America when the Continental Congress issued a proclamation setting aside a day of prayer in 1775. In 1952, Congress established an annual day of prayer and, in 1988, that law was amended, designating the National Day of Prayer as the first Thursday in May.

    From a news release from the National Day of Prayer Task Force:
    As American troops fight for democracy and freedom around the globe and battle the war on terror, citizens of the United States are preparing to celebrate their freedom to gather, worship and pray. Millions will answer the call to prayer on May 4, the 55th annual National Day of Prayer, by flocking to observances held in public venues to pray for the nation, governmental leaders, media, churches, families and schools.

    This year's theme is "America, Honor God" and is based on 1 Samuel 2:30 NIV - "Those who honor me, I will honor" National Day of Prayer Chairman Shirley Dobson, wife of Focus on the Family founder and chairman Dr. James Dobson, said "at a time when so many principles found in Scripture have been rejected by society, it's all the more vital that God's people stand firmly in defense of the precepts He's laid out in His Word. As we wage this cultural battle, however, none of our efforts are assured success without consistent, fervent prayer for God's intervention."

    "The National Day of Prayer provides each of us with a powerful opportunity to humble ourselves before the Almighty and to seek the 'redeeming and preserving grace' Abraham Lincoln so eloquently spoke! In asking God to forgive our collective rebellion against Him. We can also pray for our schools, the media and especially our governmental leaders, asking the Lord to grant them wisdom, for the challenges they face on a daily basis. How encouraging to know that our loving heavenly Father listens and responds to our personal and corporate petitions, enabling us to 'receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.'"

    Noted author and Pastor Dr. Henry Blackaby is the 2006 Honorary Chairman and will address the national event in Washington, D.C. In addition to his appearance at the national observance, Dr. Blackaby has released, Experiencing Prayer with Jesus, which is this year's theme book. Grammy award winning artist Rebecca St. James will sing the theme song, America, Honor God.
