Christians Gather to Pray for Our Nation

Christians across the nation are gathering for a prayer event, sponsored by American Family Association, to pray for our nation and the world. AFA’s annual prayer event, National Day of Prayer (NDP), which marks 53rd year this year, will be held May 6 with the theme: “Let Freedom Ring.”

NDP is part of another bigger AFA project known as Meet at City Hall (MCH), which organizes Christians at the local level to meet on the same day for prayer across the nation. Their method is very simple: concerned Christians simply meet at a city hall or county courthouse for 20 minutes at 12:20 during their lunch break to pray for the nation.

“In 1992, AFA saw a need for someone to encourage small communities and towns to have a prayer event,” said AFA President Tim Wildmon. “So we began Meet at City Hall.”
