“This coming year marks the 64th anniversary of this important day and we fully expect that the president will sign a proclamation as well as all 50 state governors. Already nearly 40 proclamations have been received and counting.”

For this year, the theme of the widely observed Day of Prayer will be “Lord, Hear Our Cry” and is accompanied by the Bible verse 1 Kings 8:28, which reads “Hear the cry and the prayer that your servant is praying in your presence this day.”

Bornschein elaborated on the theme to CP, saying it emphasizes “the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to place their faith in the unfailing character of their Creator, who is sovereign over all governments, authorities, and men.”
