National Day of Prayer in Lee's Summit, Thursday, May 2, noon, Lee’s Summit City Hall steps

May 1, 2013

With the deadly terror attack in Boston still fresh in their minds, Christians from multiple denominations will gather at Lee’s Summit City Hall to pray for our nation at noon on May 2.

As part of the National Day of Prayer, believers will transcend denominational boundaries to seek God on behalf of our families, nation and world. Each year, Americans from numerous Christian traditions unite to pray on this special day, now in its 62nd year.

This hour-long event will feature music, a short message from local pastors, and prayer. Pastors leading the event include Roger Horne of Lee’s Summit First Assembly of God, Kip Nelson of Legacy Christian Church and Phil Hopper of Abundant Life. Members of several other churches will also be represented. The event is open to all.

“Americans disagree about many things, but I think we can all agree that our nation and world are facing challenges that are too big for us,” said Pastor Phil Hopper of Abundant Life. “Vexing problems including the recent terror attack in Boston, chronic unemployment and the breakdown of families have eluded our human efforts to solve them. Prayer is humbling ourselves before God to ask for his help and to align ourselves with his purposes.”

The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the U.S. Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. In 1988, the law was amended to read as follows: “The President of the United States shall issue each year a proclamation designating the first Thursday in May as a National Day of Prayer on which the people of the United States may turn to God in prayer and meditation at churches, in groups, and as individuals.”

President Barack Obama’s presidential proclamation in 2012 said: “Throughout our history, Americans have turned to prayer for strength, inspiration, and solidarity. Prayer has played an important role in the American story and in shaping our nation’s leaders.”
