  "Save the Date"

May 2, 2024

NDP is always the first Thursday of May!

                 In 1952 Congress established an annual day of prayer; and, in 1988, that law was unanimously amended by Congress designating the National Day of Prayer as the first Thursday of May! 




Our Macon Public Observance for the next National Day of Prayer is

Midday Event 

Noon-12:30 p.m. 

Rosa Parks Square 

across from representative seat of government 

Macon-Bibb Gov't. Center,  700 Poplar Street


The 2024 Theme will be entered on our local website when it is chosen and announced by

NDP Task Force in Colorado.

2023 Theme: "Pray Fervently in Righteousness and Avail Much"

Theme Verse: "The effective, fervent prayers of a righteous man avails much."James 5:16b



The Macon NDP Observance is known as a day of community unity!  The 2023 Event Flier, currently on our website until 2024 one is out with its complete details, shows how partnerships help with logistics for experiencing the memorable Program!  Near Program's start Central High Jr. ROTC Color Guard does "Presentation of the Colors".  Then Student Groups, playing a big role as our next gneration, lead everyone in "The Pledge of Allegiance".  Our Macon Mayor presents the Mayor's NDP Proclamation.  Since the NDP Task Force identified the "7 Centers of Influence in America" and encouraged NDP events include "7 Citizens to Pray for the 7 Centers", our Macon Observance has done so for  "Government, Military, Media Arts, Business, Education, Church, and Family".  Local Pastors of different denominations pray the Invocation, give thier short speech as the year's Speaker, and the last NDP's Speaker leads everyone to say the year's Nat'l. Prayer (back of Programs). 

Our website has a lot of information for helping to grow our next NDP participation!  We want many to commit to demonstrate, with their physical presence at our Public Event, the importance of prayer and the best HOPE that is in GOD!!  An emphasis after the "23 NDP is to identify from all churches within their congregations a Church Coordinator (CC), or from larger churches more than one!  CCs promote '24 NDP May 2nd AND the Monthly Prayer "the founding fathers" of Macon's NDP Observance also wanted!  2nd Wednesday Prayer Fliers are on our local website for copying, sharing so that the power of corporate prayer is calling out the names to God, using the Printed Prayer Guide, of Local, State, and National Elected and Appointed Government Officials!  


 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!  WGNM TV is much appreciated for years of recording our Macon NDP Programs so we can put them on our local website for seeing and hearing until the next year's Program is put on.
