As we knelt in prayer in front of the Supreme Court in the early morning hours, the sun rose in the sky and beamed down upon us. And as it did, our voices recited God’s Word and petitioned the Lord on behalf of our leaders, our judges, and our country . . .
“In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” (John 1:4-5).
On this National Day of Prayer, your Faith & Action ministry team started the day out just before daybreak at the U.S. Supreme Court. As you know, Faith & Action sponsors an annual prayer observance in front of the Supreme Court building, the seat of the judicial branch of the federal government!
We are happy to say that this year’s participating crowd far surpassed our expectations and there was a passion – a spiritual passion – that filled our prayers in ways that I have not felt before. When the sun rose on our Daybreak Prayer at the Supreme Court I thought of the above Scripture in the Gospel of John. Our prayers make a difference because we are praying from a position of victory that has already been won by Christ.
Prayer has been the foundation of Faith & Action. We have always come alongside the National Day of Prayer events in Washington, D.C. – even coordinating the U.S. Capitol Bible Reading Marathon to finish up at 11:00 am to segue into the National Day of Prayer event!
Yet, long after the events are concluded today and people have left our capital, your Faith & Action ministry team remains in Washington, D.C., continuing the work of prayer and outreach to our nation’s leaders – something we have done faithfully, every day of every year throughout our ministry on the Hill.
Thank you for being a faithful part of our team! And thank you for praying on this National Day of Prayer.
On Behalf of the Faith & Action Ministry Team,
Mrs. Peggy Nienaber
Vice President of Operations
Faith & Action in the Nation’s Capital
