            "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 will I

            hear from heaven and will forgive their sin

            and will heal their land." 1 Chronicles 7:4.

            This is a call for prayer! - Mat.  

The National Day of Prayer is Thursday, May 5th.  It will be observed through thousands of events across the country  taking place in houses of worship and in both private and public forums.

This special observance was commissioned by Congress in 1952 to encourage people of all faiths to pray for the United States of America and its people. 

++A Mighty Fortress is Our God!

As you know, I believe our country is experiencing a severe moral decline that only God can correct. This year's National Day of Prayer theme is "A Mighty Fortress is Our God."  How timely for a nation that desperately needs a refuge from the many storms, plagues, and uncertainties we are facing in 2011.

            He is our stronghold and sure foundation!  And

            I firmly believe that He will restore our land,

            no matter how far we have fallen, if we will

            humble ourselves and pray! 

To me, the 2011 National Day of Prayer is unusually significant for several reasons... 

First, I am pleased to share that Liberty Counsel's President, my wife, Anita, is one of a select number of leaders that have been invited to participate in the National Day of Prayer observance in Washington, DC.   

Next, I know this is an excellent opportunity to ask our Liberty Counsel team members to pray for the Liberty Counsel Litigation Team and me as we enter final preparations for our hearing at the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, in our case against the disastrous ObamaCare law.

We truly do covet your prayers on Thursday and, in fact, each day leading up to our May 10th court date.

            I am so thankful that over 65,000 of our friends

            have already committed to pray and support my

            team and me during the upcoming hearings by

            signing our Amici Book!

What an immense encouragement to know that so many patriotic Americans are standing with us during the week of the National Day of Prayer!  We can only leave the Book open for signing a few more hours - just until midnight tonight because of production deadlines.  You can go here if you'd like to sign our "Book of Friends" and stand with us in prayer and support: 

God bless you abundantly as you observe the 2011 National Day of Prayer!
