National Day of Prayer, Meet At City Hall, May Day part of special prayer focus for America
April 9, 2010
Once again, AFA is joining the National Day of Prayer Task Force for the annual National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 6, 2010
, where you and I join with government leaders and people in communities all around the country to lift our needs and concerns for America before the Lord.
Now more than ever before, it is imperative that we as God’s people remain on our knees for our nation and fellow citizens. The critical challenges facing the United States and the culture at large call for faithful, persevering intercession – not only on the National Day of Prayer, but throughout the year.

MEET AT CITY HALL is a project for special prayer - a prayer for moral rebirth in America. It is a very simple concept. It involves people meeting at their local city hall and praying from 12:20 p.m. to 12:40 p.m. for a moral rebirth in our country. It is time we stand up publicly for the values that have made this country strong. We must set the example by taking a stand and lead our people as they stand with us. Let us unashamedly take our Light from underneath the basket and set it on a table.
Please see related article: "A Nation That Prays" by Randall Murphree, AFA Journal Editor.
It doesn't matter if you have never participated in anything like MEET AT CITY HALL before. Begin now. We urge you and your church to start planning now to participate in this special day of prayer for a moral rebirth in our country. Please don't delay.
When: Sat., May 1, 2010 - From Sunrise (6:10 A.M.) to 2:00 P.M.
Where: The Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C.
Join with Christian leaders of all denominations who love God to humble ourselves, pray, seek the face of God, and turn from our wicked ways—individually and as a nation.
This event is not to impress the media or those in Washington, but to reach the heart of God. Publicly repenting and crying out to God for His mercy instead of the judgment our many sins deserve. Repentance in personal and corporate prayer to God and remembrance of His work throughout our nation's history will be major parts of the day as we seek God to do a great work of revival or reformation in our time. The tentative plan is to begin the day with an hour of worship and praise.
