The 60th National Day of Prayer to be Celebrated at Crete Reformed Church

Crete, IL—(ENEWSPF)—April 4, 2011.  The National Day of Prayer has great significance for us as a nation. It enables us to remember the way in which our founding fathers sought the wisdom of God.  It reminds us to humbly come before God, to seek His guidance for our leaders and His grace upon us as a people. The unanimous passage of the bill establishing the National Day of Prayer as an annual event, signifies that prayer is as important to our nation today as it was in the beginning.

This day is observed annually across the nation.  Last year, local, state and federal observances were held, uniting Americans from all socio-economic, political and ethnic backgrounds in prayer for our nation. It is estimated that more than two million people attended more than 30,000 observances organized by approximately 40,000 volunteers. At state capitols, county court houses, on the steps of city halls, and in schools, businesses, churches and homes, people stopped their activities and gathered for prayer.

Crete Reformed Church will be observing the 60th Annual National Day of Prayer at 7:30 PM on May 5th.  This year’s theme will be “A Mighty Fortress is our God.”  Please join us in praying for all of our elected officials and public servants of our great country, our state and our local communities.  We are located at 24755 Country Lane in Crete (just off of Exchange Avenue and across the street from Walt’s Grocery Store).  For more information you may call 708-672-5400 Monday through Thursday. Child care will be available.
