Join Us For A Special Day Of Prayer
We invite you to join Patriot Mobile as we pray over our nation on the National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 5th. This year’s theme comes from Colossians 2:6-7: “Exalt the Lord who has established us.”
Indeed, despite what the legacy media want us to believe, America was founded on the Word of God. From the beginning, the pilgrims dedicated America “for the glory of God, and the advancement of the Christian faith,” as written in The Mayflower Compact. Let’s pray for God to be exalted again in America!
The first Thursday of May was officially designated by the US Congress, when people are asked “to turn to God in prayer and meditation.” The modern law formalized this observance in 1952.
Our Founding Fathers understood the power of prayer. In his Thanksgiving proclamation of 1789, President George Washington said, “It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor.” Benjamin Franklin shared this conviction when he said, “And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid?” Franklin was imploring the Constitutional Convention to open each day in prayer.
Scripture also admonishes us to pray. In 1 Timothy 2:1-2, Paul says, “I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone — for kings and all those in authority.” God commands us to pray for everyone in authority, no matter who is in power.
As we needed the Lord’s help at the inception of our nation, we desperately need His help today. Our nation is in a time of turmoil and uncertainty — in our government, our economy, our schools, our churches, and our health care. Around the globe, wars and rumors of wars are heard in the news. But let us not forget — there were many times in our nation’s history when America was in crisis. But God’s people came together, humbled themselves, and prayed for God to intervene.
The result? God has bestowed unmatched mercy, grace, and blessing over our nation’s history.
Let us remember God’s faithfulness and exalt Him for who He is and what He has done for America!

Lord, we exalt You.
We are filled with awe and wonder as our praise joins the heavenly hosts saying, “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord of hosts, The whole earth is full of His glory.”
You have established Your throne in heaven and the foundations of the earth.
You alone are the Creator; the earth is Yours and all it contains is for Your glory.
You created and established all of us as Your image bearers.
May our lips and lives continually praise You, reflecting and magnifying You in all our words and ways.
You are the author of our days, You have established Your plans and purpose for us.
We respond to your glory and authority in obedience to Your Word and will.
You have established prayer that we, Your children, can communicate with our Heavenly Father directing, strengthening, and discipling us in Your everlasting love.
We join heaven’s activities as we lift up our prayers
And pour out our praise, repentance, thanks, intercession, and supplication.
Lord, You have established America through the hearts of our Founding Fathers and the documents they penned declaring our dependence on Your sovereignty and supremacy.
We overflow with gratitude having been firmly rooted and built up in our faith in You.
Let our reputation be of our faith in Christ alone, our love for all people, and fruitful lives bearing the attitude, affections, and actions of Your Spirit, who dwells and works within us and through us.
