The National Day of Prayer has announced that Thursday, May 5, 2022, will be spent in prayer. The theme for this year is “Exalt the Lord, who has established us”. based on Colossians 2:6-7. During this time, people in our country specifically pray for our government, rulers, and leaders.
Here in Alton, Missouri, the churches are agreeing together to share in prayer. Due to past inclement weather issues, the ministerial alliance has decided to hold the prayer service at the Alton Assembly of God Church. At 5:30pm, food including hot dogs and hamburgers will be served. The prayer service will begin at 6:30 pm.
Behind The Theme
The theme as previously stated is “Exalt the Lord, who has established us.” Collosions 2:5-7 (NASB) states, “Therefore, as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude.”
The theme on the National Day of Prayer website is set against the backdrop of a painting exclusively created for the National Day of Prayer by the Christian artist, Ron DiCianni. The painting illustrates God’s people joining his angels in exalting him as we pray.  We have bold access to His throne and passionate confidence as we pray.
Come and Pray!
This grouping in Alton to pray for our leaders and country is open to anyone, young or old, male or female. So come on out to the Alton Assembly of God Church and pray to God!
