We, as Christians, are at the forefront of culture like never before. Therefore, we must come together and humble ourselves before God praying He will strengthen us for His work at the proper time.

 

Gathering: The 2019 National day of Prayer

This year’s National Day of Prayer event will be held on May 2, 2019 at First Presbyterian Church Greenville, in the heart of the city. The 1-hour service begins at 6:30pm. Please plan to join us. Chick-fil-A of Pelham Road will have food available for purchase in the Social Hall of the Church before the service.

Vision: A City United

To initiate and advance a movement of prayer within the Christian community of Greenville culminating in an annual gathering of Christ’s followers for the purpose of worship through prayer for our city, our county, our state, and our nation. Our prayer towards this end are:

  • To experience a true authentic unity among local believers regardless of denomination, faith tradition, ethnic background, and /or political affiliation.

  • To engage and encourage local churches and pastors to come together and jointly lead the unified Body of Christ in this community

  • To host annually a time of prayer when all Christians in the community, through active participation, visibly display our common faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, our common hope and dependence on God and His forgiveness, and our common love for our society.

  • To provide a means by which 100,000 Christians in Greenville county come together on the first Thursday in May of each year to recommit themselves to the Lord and to each other asking God to bless and strengthen the Church in this community to be salt and light for the year to come.


TO HUMBLE OURSELVES . . . TO CONFESS OUR NATIONAL SINS . . . TO PRAY FOR CLEMENCY AND FORGIVENESS.

We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power, as no other nation has ever grown.

But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own.

Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us! It behooves us, then to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.
— President Abraham Lincoln, "A National Day of Fasting, Humiliation, and Prayer" Proclamation March 30, 1863
