Every year since our nation first signed the National Day of Prayer into law in 1952, America has set aside a day for prayer on behalf of all people. This year’s theme recognizes that, while all have sinned and fall short, God’s arm is not short, and we have been sent to show and share His message of LOVE, LIFE, and LIBERTY.
In 2 Corinthians 3:2-3, Paul reminds the followers of Jesus that “You are our letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all men; being manifested that you are a letter of Christ, cared for by us, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.”
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.2 Corinthians 3:17
Just as it was 2000 years ago, the mission remains today. It is our prayer today and throughout 2021 that the Spirit of the Lord, pour out, pour through us across America, to fill our lives, families, churches, workplace, education, military, government, arts, entertainment and media, with Biblical, not cultural, not worldly, but Spirit-empowered, Spirit-filled LOVE, LIFE and LIBERTY as designed and defined by our Creator and Savior.
Our 2021 National Day of Prayer theme prays: ”LORD pour out Your LOVE, LIFE, and LIBERTY.” Once again praying and proclaiming a promise of God in our theme verse, 2 Corinthians 3:17, “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”
