National Day of Prayer

The National Day of Prayer is commemorated annually on the first Thursday in May, dating back to the first Federal National Day of Prayer called for in 1775 . A city-wide gathering is held at 12noon which brings together a diverse blend of our civic and faith communities from across the greater Nashville area.

Prayer groups are formed to pray for our City, State, and Country. The theme for 2019 is “Love One Another (John13:34) and available in social media as #LOVE1ANOTHER.

The Operation Andrew Group invited the Governor of the State of Tennessee Bill Lee, Nashville’s Mayor David Briley, and MNPD Chief Steve Anderson to welcome community leaders gathered at the public assembly in the Bennett Auditorium of the Southern Baptist Convention Building. Michael Nolan, OAG President, challenged churches and believers in Nashville to increase unity by living out the power of the gospel given to all through Jesus. God loves us. We are to simply and tenaciously love one another.

Prayer unifies to renew strength. The singing of The Star Spangled Banner, and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance provided a time to recommit ourselves for the coming year, working hand in hand for each other’s good. (Neh 2:18)
