Today is the National Day of Prayer in our nation's capitol from 9:00 A.M. until noon; the adopted scriptural thematic focus is taken from Romans 15:6: "One Voice, United in Prayer."

The following is just an excerpt of the "official" prayer written by Anne Graham Lotz, chairwoman of the event:


Lord of the Universe, Lord of this planet, Lord of our hearts.
On this National Day of Prayer, we look to you.

In the darkness, You are our light
In the storm, You are our anchor
In our weakness, You are our strength.  
In our grief, You are our comfort
In our despair, You are our hope
In our confusion, You are our wisdom
In time of terrorism, You are our shield.  
In time of war, You are our peace
In times of uncertainty, You are the Rock on which we stand.............

So we choose to stop pointing our finger at the sins of others,
and examine our own hearts and lives.
We choose to acknowledge our own sin--our neglect and defiance and
ignorance and even rejection of You.
This day we choose to repent........

For the glory of Your Name, hear our prayer, forgive our sin, and
heal our land..........
