"Save the Date"
May 4, 2023
NDP is always the first Thursday of May!
The 2023 Theme is
Pray Fervently In Righteousness and Avail Much
"The effective, fervent prayers of a righteous man avails much." James 5:16b
It was 1988 when it was unanimously passed by Congress for NDP to be the first Thursday of May annually!
The Macon NDP Observance is known as a day of community unity! Since it has been happening annually for many years, it is much anticipated! Our website celebrates past NDP Programs and has a lot of information for leading up to each NDP! Our past programs have included the current Mayor presenting his National Day of Prayer Proclamation and some local Pastors of different denominations. We started when the NDP Task Force, based in Colorado, identified the 7 Centers of Influence in America choosing 7 diversified, but applicable to that Center, Citizens to pray for each. And students play a big Program role to lead everyone else in the Pledge of Allegiance.
In this age of technology and in our partnership between our Macon NDP Committee and our good, local Christian TV station, WGNM, God blessed during the Pandemic we did not miss having our Macon NDP because it could be virtual to be broadcast and livestream! For quite a few years WGNM has recorded our Macon NDP Programs so we can put them on our local webiste for viewing until the next year's Program is put on.
Macon NDP Public Midday Event Speaker is Rodney Queen, Pastor of Central Fellowship Baptist Church

In 1976 he graduated from Bible College, was ordained, and planted Gospel Light Church. Rodney established radio station WBPS-FM in 1988, bearing precious seed.
