National Day of Prayer: May 6

Prayer has always been an important part of my life even if my motives were not always the purest. I remember many fervent prayer sessions in my younger years. They often came right before or after a test I hadn’t studied enough for. I would pray, “Lord, I hope that went better than I think it did,” or “Please help the teacher to lose my test.” I was asking and believing in faith, but my motives were usually pretty self-centered.

As I have grown older, I have learned that God does want me to cry out in times of trouble, but what I am seeking is that God’s will be done. I am to walk in relationship with God, be a faithful follower of His, and live according to His Word. My prayer life is so much more enjoyable when I pray daily and not just when I am in trouble. Prayer does change things; sometimes it changes a

situation, and many times it changes me.

On May 6 from 7:00-8:00 a.m., we have an opportunity to come together to observe the National Day of Prayer and ask God to bring change to this nation and world. I hope you will join us at the Reynold’s Center in Poteau or pray wherever you find yourself that Thursday morning. God is not done, and He hears the prayers of His children. May those prayers invite His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.

“We all can pray. We all should pray. We should ask the fulfillment of God’s will. We should ask for courage, wisdom, for the quietness of soul which comes alone to them who place their lives in His hands.” - Harry S. Truman, 33rd US President


Praying for our nation:

Thank you for Praying,

Bentley Hill
