Two things have I required of Thee; deny me them not before I die:

Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain.

Proverbs 30:8 & 9

The memory of the just is blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot. Proverbs 10:7

Memorial Day was formerly known as Decoration Day. This holiday commemorates U.S. men and women who have died in military service to their country. It began first to honor Union soldiers who died during the American Civil War. After World War I, it was expanded to include those who died in any war or military action.

Abraham Lincoln at the commemoration of the Battlefield at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, declared these words honoring those who had lost their lives on the battlefield at Gettysburg:

That from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion, that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation under God, and that government of the people by the people and for the people shall not perish from the earth.”

Prayer:

Dear Heavenly Father, we thank You for the many freedoms we enjoy as a nation to worship You. We thank You for peace in our land and pray that it may be extended throughout the world, and that many may come to know You – the Prince of Peace.

We ask that you would have mercy on our brave men and women in harms way. We pray that You would reveal the truth of Your love in their hearts; that You would bring comfort and peace to their families; and that You would protect them from the wickedness of this world. We ask that you would turn the tide against the terrorist enemies of this world, whose only offering to mankind is death, destruction, and oppression. This we ask in Jesus’ name, AMEN!

As American troops remain in harm’s way, our economy continues to waiver, and we quickly approach our upcoming elections, citizens of the United States are preparing to exercise their freedom to gather, worship, and pray. Millions will answer the call to prayer on May 3rd in observance of the 61st annual National Day of Prayer. Organized events will be held in thousands of public venues where intercession will be made for America and its leadership.

This year’s theme, “One Nation Under God”, is based on Psalm 33:12 which reminds us that “blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” National Day of Prayer (NDP) Task Force Chairman Shirley Dobson, wife of Focus on the Family founder Dr. James Dobson, said “At this perilous and uncertain juncture in our country’s history, it is critical that we remain in prayer. The American people continue to be plagued with challenges that defy simple answers, and our hope lies in humbly seeking the Almighty’s guidance, protection, and blessing – not only on the National Day of Prayer, but throughout the year.”

Esteemed author, Founder of Turning Point Ministries, and Senior Pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church – Dr. David Jeremiah – will serve as the 2012 Honorary Chairman of the NDP Task Force and will give the keynote address at the National Observance in Washington, D.C., to be held at the Cannon House Office Building.
