Today, May 2nd, 2013 is the National Day of Prayer. And The World Prayer Team is joining with Nationaldayorprayer.org to pray for our country and our leaders.
The 62nd annual National Day of Prayer will have profound significance for our country. We have an unprecedented opportunity to see the Lord’s healing and renewing power made manifest as we call on citizens to humbly come before His throne. To echo the words of Mary Washington, mother of our nation’s first president, we believe it is time to “Remember that God is our only sure trust.”
Our theme for 2013 is Pray for America, emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to place their faith in the unfailing character of their Creator, who is sovereign over all governments, authorities, and men. To further highlight our theme, we’ve chosen Matthew 12:21 as our Scripture for this year: “In His name the nations will put their hope.”
No matter your politics, no matter how you feel about our countries leaders or their actions, we must unite as the people of God and prayer for the United States.
Please share this with anyone you know and encourage them to pray.
Please feel free to leave a prayer for the United States in the comment section of this post.
Thank you for praying, and Thank you for BEING The World Prayer Team.
I was spending some time with a friend of mine over the weekend and the subject of favorite books on prayer came up. It was such a great conversation, that I thought I would share some of the list with you.
Most of the books listed I have either read or am currently reading, but there are a few that are on the pile next to my desk that I have not gotten to yet.
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion?… Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” Matt. 11:28-30 (MSG) PRAYING PEACE OVER YOUR LIFE TODAY!

Nic & Rachael Billman, along with their four children (Christian, Forrest, Leila and Cássia), are serving the Lord in Recife, Brazil, one of the worst cities in the world for child sex-trafficking. Nic and Rachael are the founders and directors of Shores of Grace Ministries, a missionary and worship ministry focused on rescuing and restoring women and children in prostitution, sexual slavery and abuse in Brazil where there is an estimated 1,500,000 children in prostitution.
Nic and Rachael attended the Global School of Supernatural Ministry and Nic is licensed through Global Awakening, a ministry led by Randy Clark. They lead a team of 12 adults and 7 children in Brazil and they feel their calling is to elevate other to their destiny. They hope that one day they will be on the very bottom of a huge pile of people who have stepped into their identity and destiny in the Father. They go the streets of Brazil with the love of the Father to bring transformation and restoration to the lives of the men, women and children on the streets. In July of 2012 they will be opening their first rescue home for young girls caught in sex-trafficking, then they will open a home for boys in January of 2013. They are also in the process of opening Graça Casa de Oração (Grace House of Prayer), a house of 24 hour intercession, worship and the arts in the poorest section of Recife.
In addition to these ministries Nic, Rachael and their team travel to churches all over Brazil training the body of Christ how to minister on the streets of their cities. Nic and Rachael have also released 8 worship albums and Nic has co-authored two books and is currently working on his own book titled “Compassion: The Fruit of Sonship”.
