May Day 2010 - A Cry to God for a Nation in Distress

Join with Christian leaders of all denominations who love God to humble ourselves, pray, seek the face of God, and turn from our wicked ways-individually and as a nation. Jesus will be front and center at May Day. Prayers will be offered in Jesus' Name!

When: May 1st 2010 - Starting at Sunrise (6:10 A.M. EDT) and finishing at 2:00 P.M.

Where: The Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C.

Christian Newswire Reports on MayDay 2010:
WASHINGTON, March 11 /Christian Newswire/ -- On "May Day," Saturday, May 1st, Christians from around the nation will gather beginning at sunrise (6:10 a.m.) at the Lincoln Memorial with Christian and Jewish leaders who wholeheartedly love God for the sole purpose of repenting and remembering the God of our fathers.

Pro-family leaders across denominational boundaries have joined together for this effort including: Dr. James Dobson, American Family Association President, Tim Wildmon, Concerned Women for America President, Wendy Wright, Liberty Counsel Chairman, Mat Staver, NRB President, Dr. Frank Wright, Three Star General Jerry Boykin, Dutch Sheets, David Barton, and many members of Congress who are willing to stand in the gap for our nation.

"God didn't call us to gather together to hear political speeches," said Pastor Paul Blair, Pastor Coordinator for May Day, "he called us to humble ourselves and gather together to pray." He added, "May Day is 'Pray Day.'"

"This event is not to impress the media or the Washington 'elite.' May Day is focused on God--to cry out and repent of our nation's sins that have brought us to this point of distress," said Janet Porter, Faith2Action President and May Day Coordinator. "I believe the national repentance at May Day is essential to break the curses on our nation brought about by our choices of disobedience and death. The good news is repentance breaks a curse and a remnant can save a nation," she added.

May 2 - 6, 2010

The National Bible Reading Marathon

For four days, the entirety of God's Word will be read aloud over the nation's capital from Genesis to Revelation.

The Bible Reading Marathon will culminate in the final chapter of Revelation being read aloud, which leads into the National Day of Prayer.

Participants from dozens of nations read the Word of God aloud in their native languages, too. To stand on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol, gazing upon the Washington Monument, and decree the WORD OF GOD ALOUD is an experience you will never forget!

Capitol Hill - Solemn Assembly

National Day of Prayer

Thursday, May 6, 2010
11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Prayer has always been used in this country for guidance, protection and strength-even before we were a nation or a handful of colonies. The Pilgrims at Plymouth relied on prayer during their first and darkest winter.

Our founding fathers also called for prayer during the Constitutional Congress. In their eyes, our recently created nation and freedoms were a direct gift from God. And being a gift from God, there was only one way to insure protection - through prayer.

This year, come join with others to cry out for the nation in repentance on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol, immediately following the ending of the National Bible Readathon.

Hosted by Nancy Sharman, a National Area Leader (NAL) for the National Day of Prayer Task Force in Colorado Springs, Colorado, this first-time assembly will allow all of us an opportunity to move into corporate intercession upon completion of the reading of the Word of God.
For more information on this Solemn Assembly, please contact Nancy Sharman at

Capital Region National Day of Prayer

West Lawn of the United States Capitol

Thursday, May 6, 20101
5:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

This NDP Celebration features a multi-racial, multi-cultural gathering at the U.S. Capitol. More specifically, it is a cross-cultural annual event of worship, repentance, supplication and celebration of the Church's unity. It is a unique occasion that has occurred consistently for over a decade! It is a visible expression of corporate identity when the many-membered Body of Christ is united with Christians representing all of the World's continents, the suburbs, the inner city, and members of store-front and mega-sized congregations all gather as one on the steps of the Capitol building to symbolize and proclaim the sovereignty of Christ over the city, Nation and humanity.

Foundation: Corporate prayer and the fostering of relationships in the Body of Christ since 1970 with those of like vision.

The Quest: Unity in Christ


59th Annual Observance:


"The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him." (Nahum 1:7)

The 59th Annual National Day of Prayer will take place Thursday, May 6, 2010. Millions will unite in prayer at thousands of events from coast to coast. The theme for this coming year is "Prayer for Such a Time as This" and is based on the verse from Nahum 1:7 which states: "The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him."

Mr. Franklin Graham will join Shirley Dobson to lead the nation in prayer as the 2010 Honorary Chairman of the National Day of Prayer Task Force.

Capitol Hill Prayer Partners wishes to encourage all of our members to take time on Thursday, May 6 to join an observance of the National Day of Prayer in your own region.
