On today’s show, we talk about the National Day of Prayer and what a difference can be made by people who come together and pray for God to help us.
On today’s show we talk about the National Day of Prayer. You’ll hear some thoughts on the benefits of gathering together for community prayer as well as the legality of holding it at your own City Hall.
Today we interview Kathy Morgan, President of the Gateway National Day of Prayer. Do you know why, when and how we have a National Day of Prayer? You’ll get these answers in this episode.

It always happens on the first Thursday of May. My faithful readers know we mention this yearly, but this time we approach this from a Constitutional perspective.
It seems like every year issues that were once “no-brainers” now appear to be confusing. Perhaps the problem is not the issues, but the people in governmental positions who lack an education on the proper role of government.
There’s an old expression, “Use it or lose it.” That applies to our freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom to peaceably assemble. Our City Halls do not belong to the bureaucrats. Our City Halls belong to the citizens and taxpayers of each city.
If ever our nation needed prayer, it’s now. During the terrifying days of World War II, when England was being bombed and rockets were destroying their cities, Prime Minister Winston Churchill called on all citizens to unite and pray. At 9:00 each night, for just one minute, citizens asked for God’s help in their oppressive situation. The people responded and their hopes were raised as they committed to trust in the Lord and watch for the miracles that saved them later.
When a German soldier was captured he said: “We cannot win because you have that secret powerful weapon.” He was referring to the call to prayer each night at 9:00 o’clock.
Our nation is being attacked from within with bad laws, blatant disregard for the Constitution, immorality and poor judgement. We need to come together. The same response that worked in the past will work in the future: 1.) Humble ourselves 2.) Pray 3.) Seek God’s face 4.) Turn from our wicked ways.
What is the point of praying for our country? Does it make a difference? In this episode, we talk with Rev. Ed Plants, Pastor of Geyer Road Baptist Church about what he is doing. The armchair hand wringing is getting us nowhere. Could it be time to ask heaven to help us?
