Photo Recap: National Day of Prayer 2017


On May 4th, 2017, hundreds gathered on the 22nd floor of the Florida State Capitol to join together from different influential aspects of society to honor God, humble themselves, and pray for God to intervene in America.

A National Day

In 1863, President Abraham Lincoln appointed a day of national humiliation, fasting, and prayer. The following excerpts are from that proclamation:

“We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven; we have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity; we have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God.”
Students from Tallavana Christian School perform special songs during the program.
Lieutenant Governor Carlos López-Cantera and Pam Olsen show off their Life Bands, which are a commitment to pray for the ending of abortion, vote for pro-life leaders, and obey God in acts of mercy.
“We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us, and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own.”

“Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us.”

Florida governmental leaders lead in prayer

Members of the Florida Cabinet were gracious enough to take time out of their Session schedules to attended the meeting and offer up prayers for God to intervene in our state and nation. Below the following photos are short Facebook Live videos of some of those prayers.
