Today is the National Day of Prayer and while the observances in Washington, D.C. will be different due to the coronavirus, we can still ask you to join in prayer with those who have participated from the U.S. capitol in years past. Prepare your hearts and join us as we lift us the nation and our leaders in prayer.
COVID-19 has changed everything but it cannot destroy the power of prayer. Even though observances from Washington will be different this year, we can still go back in time and share with you powerful prayers that emanated from the U.S Capitol from years past. We ask you to join us this hour as we pray for America and for those in authority.
