“For you are my lamp, O Lord, and my God lightens my darkness. For by You I can run against a troop, and by my God I can leap over a wall. This God—His way is perfect; the word of the Lord proves true; He is a shield for all those who take refuge in Him.” 2 Samuel 22:29-31

Statement of Faith – National Day of Prayer Task Force

We Believe:

  • The Holy Bible is the inspired, only, infallible, authoritative Word of The Living God.
  • There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • The Lord is the Creator of all things in heaven and on earth; all things have been created through Him and for Him (Colossians 1:16, Genesis 1).
  • In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in his personal return in power and glory.
  • That for salvation of lost and sinful men and women, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
  • In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
  • In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they who are saved unto resurrection life and they who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
  • In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. 

2024 National Prayer

Jesus, we profess our faith in You. You are the

Light of the world, and in You there is no

darkness. For You are our lamp, O LORD, and

our God who lights our darkness. Forgive us for

fearing and focusing on the darkness around us

instead of being filled with faith and shining like

the city on a hill You have called us to be.

Forgive us for the times when we have been the

absence of light, allowing darkness to dwell in

America. Lead us forward to dispel the darkness

and bring light throughout the Church, Family,

Education, Business, Military, Government, and

Arts, Entertainment, and Media.

We are saved by grace through faith, released

from the darkness that once held us captive and

now free to walk in the newness of life in You.

Light dispels darkness and exposes what is

hidden and wicked, so we commit to rise and

shine! For by You, Lord, we can take courage to

run against the enemy, and by our God we can

fight the good fight and keep the faith as living

lampstands in our communities and country.

We fear no evil for You are with us.

Lord, Your way is perfect, You lead us on paths

of righteousness for Your name’s sake. Your 

Word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our

path. Your Word is Truth, instructing and

inspiring us to live in the abundant life You gave

when You saved us from the death and

destruction of the enemy. Fill us with Truth as

we read, study, and live Your Word.

God, You are a shield for all those who take

refuge in You. As we abide in You and Your

Word abides in us, we take up our shield of

faith and the sword of the Spirit which is the

Word of God and run boldly into the darkness

to Lift Up the Word and Light Up the World!

In the Mighty name of Jesus we pray, amen!
