National Day of Prayer

The East Cooper National Day of Prayer will be on Thursday, May 4 noon til 1pm St. Andrews Mt. Pleasant. 440 Whilden street Mt. Pleasant SC 29464

Join our community in a time of prayer for our city, state, and nation. This year's theme stands as a call to fall to our knees in intercession: “Pray Fervently In Righteousness And Avail Much” inspired from scripture in James 5:16b “The effective, fervently prayer of a righteous man avails much.”

The National Day of Prayer observance was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of Congress and signed into law by President Truman. Each year since then our president has called upon the citizens of our nation to pray, and in 1988 President Reagan established this day of prayer to be the First Thursday of May. The significance for us as a nation is that it enables us to recall and to teach the way in which our founders sought the wisdom of God when faced with critical challenges and decisions. It stands as a call for us to humbly come before God, seeking His guidance for our leaders and His grace upon us as a people.
