May 10: The Only Commandment with a Promise – Deuteronomy 5:16

                        HONOR your father and mother!  On Mother’s Day this sounds appropriate.  How do we do that?  What does that mean?  And if we do it there’s a promise.  Yes there is and some wonder why life has gone sour.  Let the Bible remind you of the foundation of success.

National Day of Prayer 2015


The National Day of Prayer will take place on Thursday, May 7, 2015.

Days of prayer have been called for since 1775, when the Continental Congress designated a time for prayer in forming a new nation. In 1863, Abraham Lincoln called for such a day. Officially, the NDP was established as an annual event by an act of Congress in 1952 and was signed into law by President Truman.

The National Day of Prayer was established as an annual event in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. The observance of the National Day of Prayer is founded on the constitutional rights of freedom of speech and freedom of religion and can be celebrated by all Americans.

President Reagan amended the law in 1988, designating the first Thursday of May each year as the NDP.

The 2015 Theme is LORD, HEAR OUR CRY which is based on I KINGS 8:28: “Hear the cry and the prayer that your servant is praying in your presence this day.”
