National Day of Prayer 2013

Although Austin, Texas isn't necessarily known for active Christianity, this morning residents of the city and surrounding areas joined Governor Rick Perry in a special prayer breakfast.  Highlights included comments from former NFL player & State Representative Scott Turner, a performance by National Dove Award Artist Paul Overstreet, and a very heartfelt conversation about life and faith between Jimmy Gregory and Governor Perry.  Most significant however, was the prayer time; attendees spent time praying for the Military, those in government, education, media, business, and ministry, and especially families.  (And yes, we prayed for President Obama.)

There are many ways you can stand up for truth, but one essential element is to pray unceasingly. 

The official National Day of Prayer 2013 is actually May 2, but there are numerous events scheduled around the state all week long.  To find an event near you visit the NDP Task Force events page.  Several events are planned for Williamson County in Cedar Park, Georgetown, Leander, Round Rock, and Taylor.  Details can be found at the National Day of Prayer-Austin website
