NAE Urges Churches to "Pray Together" Sunday, July 10
The National Association of Evangelicals (NAE), of which the Assemblies of God is a member, is urging churches to commit to a time of prayer for “our hearts and the nation” during their worship services on Sunday, July 10, 2016.
“What if we all asked Jesus to change our hearts and our nation?” asked Leith Anderson, president of the NAE. “[Our] country faces many challenges. Now is the time for evangelicals to join together in prayer.”
Called Pray Together Sunday, the NAE call to prayer kicks off the week leading up to Together 2016 — a national campaign, endorsed by the Assemblies of God, to bring 1 million people to the National Mall in Washington, D.C., for a day of worship and prayer on Saturday, July 16.
In order to highlight Pray Together Sunday, the NAE has created a free bulletin insert that features six specific points of prayer. The NAE Pray Together page also offers radio spots that can be downloaded, a podcast conversation featuring Anderson and Together 2016 organizer Nick Hall, and a link to Together 2016 resources.
“Bringing together one million people at the National Mall for prayer makes a statement,” observes AG General Superintendent George O. Wood. “But imagine the exponential impact if millions more paved the way by lifting this event up to the Lord in prayer, that He would do the miraculous at and through Together 2016! I encourage every church to set aside time to seek God on behalf of ‘our hearts and the nation’ on July 10.”
