National Day of Prayer (Thurs, May 1) – 5 Ways to Involve Your Kids

The annual National Day of Prayer is a wonder time to pause and remember to be grateful for our great country and to lift it up in prayer. 

Creative ways to pray for America on this day or any day can be found at and and include:

*Pray as a family the same prayer people will be praying all across the nation on May 1:

*Record your prayer for America:
 From the website, “We want to hear from you! Call (719) 559-9566 to record your prayer for America!”

*Sign a declaration to commit to pray for AmericaClick here

*Download Prayer Guides and other materials for the National Day of Prayer – Click here

*favorite idea I ran across is the Prayer balloon Launch KitClick here.  This would be so much fun for families or church groups!   Make your own version by grabbing a few helium balloons at the grocery store, writing your family prayers for America on homemade tags to attach to the balloons, and launching them from your home!
