Military Prayer Day 2012

Over the last three years, I've hosted a Military Prayer Week on Navy Christian. I've been joined by a virtual group of up to 50 or so, and we've had some good prayer for those who serve the United States. This year, because Veterans Day falls on a Sunday, I'm condensing the MPW into a Military Prayer Day. I want to encourage you to help me make it the largest outpouring of prayer for the military that we've ever had!

I would like you to mark your calendar for Veteran's Day (11 November) this year to join me in a Military Prayer Day. As I have said on occasion on this blog, the military needs your prayer support. It doesn't matter whether you pray for a loved one, friend, or the military in general. It doesn't matter if you pick the US Navy, US Army, US Marines, US Air Force, or US Coast Guard, or for that matter a foreign military unit. We all need your prayers and we can all benefit the Kingdom.

I'm not asking you to give up football for this. In fact, I don't plan to give up football for this. What I am asking you to do is to pause periodically for the chance to pray for those who serve. Simply say a prayer or two as you get into the car to drive to church in the morning (and maybe lead your Sunday School class in praying for the military), pray before the game starts, pray for the military as your team loses (or wins) and pray in a host of other scenarios. Just pray!

So please consider marking your calendars on for the 11th of November to join me in praying several times that day for the military. I will be posting prayer items throughout the day on the blog and on Twitter/Facebook.

Along with joining me in the prayer day itself, I would love it if you would pass the information on to your friends, families, and pastors. The more people we have involved, the better!

Ok, see you then!
