2021 Theme for NDP
2021 Theme Scripture
2 Corinthians 3:17 NKJV
To learn about Macon's Monthly Prayer Opportunity, go to
our "Pray On" Page!
When Macon's NDP was started, it was under the leadership of godly men and women who had formed a 501c3 they named "Here's Life, Macon". One of those founding fathers was Mr. Bob Cunningham who, wanting to also start a Monthly Prayer Opportunity in Macon with the annual NDP, coined a phrase, "It's not about a day; it's about a discipline!". This Monthly Prayer time has gone on uninterrupted since, what we have been able to determine, was the late 70's! When the virus threathened to interrupt, calling in to this Prayer Time was started! It has blessed that, while some could come to Macon-Bibb Gov't. Center, Room 205, wearing masks and social distancing, others could be part by calling in! That will continue for various reasons that could keep some from being in person for this blessing of their praying making differences for elected and appointed government officials, and being blessed themselves!
NDP is always the First Thursday of May! It was 1988 when it was unanimously passed by Congress to be this day 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 featured the Mayor presenting his National Day of Prayer Proclamation; some local Pastors of different denominations for the Invocation, Scripture Reading, a speaker presenting a message; and the Closing with everyone in unison reading the current year's National Prayer lead by the previous year's Speaker. We started when the NDP Task Force, based in Colorado, identified the 7 Centers of Influend in America choosing 7 diversified, but applicable to that Center, Citizens to pray for each. And students play a big Program role to have Jr. ROTC Present the Colors and students representing Youth, our future generations, leading everyone in the Pledge of Allegiance and the Singing of the National Anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner".
In this age of technology and in our partnership between our Macon NDP Committee and our good, local Christian TV station, WGNM, the two years of needing to do our NDP Programs for Virtual participation have truly been eye-opening and exciting how beneficial Virtual is! We can invite former Maconites, our family, friends, and circles of influence to be part of our Macon NDP! ANYONE, ANYWHERE can be part---no matter where they live or currently may be by CALCULATING TO THEIR TIME our Eastern Daylight Savings Time for this annual, impactful, unifying time of our available virtually National Day of Prayer Observance! Not only will our NDP Event be special for its format, its Program Participants' parts, and the certain participation parts, but it can be experienced Broadcast on WGNM TV in its 23 counties viewing area AND, literally, all over America and the world on WGNM.com
