National Day of Prayer to Encourage a United Voice

Ad Feedback

Thursday marks the 63rd annual National Day of Prayer. This year's theme is "One Voice, United in Prayer."

An estimated 40,000 events nationwide will mark the day, including many at local and national government buildings.

In Washington, D.C., lawmakers will observe the National Day of Prayer on Capitol Hill, where congressmen  like Rep. James Lankford, R-Okla., are urging Americans to pray for the nation.

"There is still a God in heaven who hears our prayer" and "cares about our lives," Lankford said.

***With our nation being divided on so many issues, many wonder how Americans can come together with one mind and one voice. Shirley Dobson, chairman of the National Day of Prayer Task Force, addressed that question and more on The 700 Club, April 30.

Ahead of the event, the 25th annual U.S. Capitol Bible reading marathon began Sunday evening.

The entire Bible is being read through, non-stop. The reading will be completed Thursday during the Day of Prayer.

Watch below for a glimpse of that event:
