Churches unite May 5th for the National Day of Prayer

Tulsans will celebrate the National Day of Prayer on May 5 and then follow that with a “Serve My City Day” on May 7.

“We see an opportunity before us in May to foster unity in the church of Tulsa by not just uniting in prayer and service – but providing an avenue for young adults to register to vote in advance of the general election,” said a spokesman.

”The emphasis is designed to be another catalyst to help connect more churches to pray and work together and send a message to our city that we are united, that we love them and we are here to help. And, this year’s events are being explored and planned with a desire to engage all generations in prayer and service.”

Pastor Sharon Daugherty of Victory Christian Center is serving as the coordinator with the help of Pastor Calvin Battle for the May 5 event here in Tulsa at Christ Chapel at Oral Roberts University from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.

This will be a time of focused prayer by pastors and leaders from across the area coming together in corporate prayer for their communities, state, and nation.

On May 7, churches are partnering with other churches near them for one combined bigger outreach. And some churches, who may have already had an outreach planned, are conducting their own, but on the same day.

“Consider what’s best for your church and get involved Saturday, May 7th,” said the spokesman. “These projects will focus not just on a day of service, but provide opportunity for churches to develop long-term partnerships between each other and the community.”
