MS NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER
IMMEDIATE PRESS RELEASE
We are excited to announce the 2021 National Day of Prayer observance will be held Thursday, May 6th, 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the Mississippi Coliseum in Jackson, MS.
All are invited to attend as we unite to praise, worship, and pray for our cities, state, and nation. Prayers will be offered by Governor Tate Reeves, Commissioner Andy Gipson, and other dignitaries, pastors, and local citizens for the seven spheres of influence in our culture: Government, Church, Family, Business/Commerce, Education, Media/Arts & Entertainment, and Military.
Americans from all walks of life will gather on May 6th to lift up our country in prayer on the National Day of Prayer. Our nation has endured a year marked by unprecedented challenges, but we know prayer has carried us through these days and the hand of God will move us into a brighter future.
This year marks 70 years since Reverend Billy Graham stood on the capitol steps in February 1952 and called for congress and the president to establish a National Day of Prayer. By April of that year, President Truman signed the legislation into public law followed by President Reagan designating the first Thursday in May as the annual observance for the National Day of Prayer. Through the decades, the efforts of the National Day of Prayer Task Force has mobilized Americans to observe the National Day of Prayer in all 50 states and in U.S. territories to pray for those who lead and those in need in our nation.
As we believe and pray in 2021, our theme echoes our prayers: “LORD pour out Your LOVE, LIFE, and LIBERTY.” Once again proclaiming a promise of God in our theme verse, 2 Corinthians 3:17 NKJV, “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”
“It is our prayer today and throughout 2021 that the Spirit of the Lord would pour out and pour through us across America,” said Kathy Branzell, President. “We pray to see the Lord fill our lives, families, churches, workplace, education, military, government, arts, entertainment, and media, with Biblical, not cultural, not worldly, but Spirit-empowered, Spirit-filled LOVE, LIFE and LIBERTY as designed and defined by our Creator and Savior.”
