Kansas City-area National Day of Prayer events and prayer guide

Americans will gather Thursday, May 5, for the annual National Day Of Prayer. The region will host both in-person and virtual gatherings. See the list below as well as a full prayer guide.

The theme for this year’s celebration is “Exalt the Lord who has established us.” Colossians 2:6-7.

Both organizers and participants hope to see the nation turn back to God, and are asking for a revival of the church, families and government – the three institutions established by God in the Scriptures.

PrayKC is organizing several of the regional events with locations spread out across the metro. For events in your part of the state or any state across the nation, visit their website.

“In all our years in Kansas City, we cannot recall a time we were more desperate for prayer and breakthrough in our city and nation than right now,” stated Pastor Gary Schmitz,  director of PrayKC. “Through prayer, we are able to tap into God’s wisdom, strength, protection, and peace. He stands ready to respond to our needs when we humbly ask for divine intervention.”
Schmitz says that God is the one who gave us the promise in 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” As we humbly and diligently seek Him, we’ll be changed, and we’ll see transformation in America through prayer!

How to Pray for America

WHY PRAY FOR AMERICA?

God is sovereign and nothing comes as a surprise to Him. Whether we face fluctuating economics, threats from abroad, unrest at home, or other troubling circumstances, our Heavenly Father is not caught unaware. Through prayer, we are able to tap into His wisdom, strength, protection, and peace. He stands ready to respond to our needs when we humbly ask for divine intervention in the affairs of men.

As we Pray for America whose pledge of allegiance recounts that we are “one nation under God,” and whose currency states that it is “in God we trust,” we want Americans to encounter the God who rules over their country. “He who forms the mountains, creates the wind, and reveals His thoughts to man, He who turns dawn to darkness, and treads the high places of the earth—the LORD God Almighty is His name.”
—Amos 4:13 NIV

He is the One who gave us this promise in 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” As we humbly and diligently seek Him, we’ll be changed, and we’ll see transformation in America through prayer!
