As this article releases, we are almost two months away from the National Day of Prayer. I want to appeal to each of you to be involved in and on the National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 2, 2019.
1. Mark the date now on your calendar: Thursday, May 2.
2. Plan to be part of a prayer observance in your town, city, or county.
- Discover where an observance is already planned and join in.

- Begin to have an observance for your church and involve other churches.
- Have an observance in your workplace during lunch or when the management at your job would be willing to let you meet.

5. Our National Day of Prayer Task Force, based in Colorado Springs, is in major financial need. Yes, it does cost money to do what is prepared, advanced, promoted across America.
Between now May 30, we need to see at least $500,000 given to help us make the needed budget to pull everything off for this year. Please make a gift today online by going here or mail a check to PO Box 64225, Colorado Springs, CO 80962.

6. Pray daily for the 2019 National Day of Prayer on May 2. Last year, millions were involved and reached on the National Day of Prayer through thousands of gatherings across this nation. This is a great moment to touch America and advance the hope Jesus Christ offers each person across the world. Therefore, we need to pray for this day: For more observances, for more people, for greater resources, and most of all, for the power of God to fall upon our nation on Thursday, May 2.
Now is the Time to Lead,
