The City of Greenwood will participate in the National Day of Prayer to be held at the Sebastian County Courthouse at noon on Thursday, May 6.
The theme of prayer for 2021: Lord, Pour Out Your LOVE, LIFE, and LIBERTY!
LOVE that should never be underestimated or wrongly defined by what we have in mind or what we have experienced in ‘supposed earthly love.’ LOVE that is not merely an emotion, but that should set us in motion. Not fueled by earthly desires but eternal destinies that are at stake.
LIFE that is a gift from God, that we live not for ourselves, but for Him and for others. LIFE that is valued and treasured, LIFE that we ultimately give back to Him as a gift. LIFE that we recognize as sacred and holy, whether young or old, born or unborn. LIFE that is abundant and eternal.
LIBERTY that Jesus came to give. Not just freedoms in America, but true LIBERTY for all who are in bondage to sin and death. LIBERTY that breaks every chain and shackle, that turns our painful memories into praise-filled miracles!
TRUE LOVE, LIFE, and LIBERTY as designed and defined by God alone.
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 day of prayer. By April of that year, President Truman signed the
legislation into public law.
Through the decades, the efforts of the National Day of Prayer Task Force have 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.
