Love One Another All Year

Love is frequently the topic of conversation during this week in February. Whether you celebrate Valentine’s Day or not, there is no mistaking that a day focused on love is coming. From jewelry commercials to candy in heart-shaped boxes, the thought and idea of love permeates our culture during the first part of February.

But what if we focused on love all year long? What if we took the principles of love and put them into practice during the month of June? Or September? Every day of the year? I don’t mean romantic love. I mean the kind of love that causes us to truly appreciate someone else. To be kind, to sacrifice self, give to others, and desire good things for someone else. Not just in our families, but in our workplaces, schools, churches, and communities.

That is exactly what this year’s theme of the National Day of Prayer is calling us to do. LOVE ONE ANOTHER is not just a theme for a day of prayer. It is a calling to each of us to put into practice principles of love every day. Our families need us to LOVE ONE ANOTHER. Our workplaces need us to LOVE ONE ANOTHER. America needs us to LOVE ONE ANOTHER. The world needs us to LOVE ONE ANOTHER. It is a high calling, and one that has the potential to change not only our own personal circles, but America and the world.

Where Will You be on Thursday, May 2, 2019?

Thursday, May 2, 2019 is the National Day of Prayer. Where will you be on that day?

Most of us will probably be at work. And while there is likely a community or church gathering you can attend, I want to encourage you to also bring the National Day of Prayer and prayer for America into your workplace.

Why?

Aside from your family, you likely spend the most time with your coworkers. Whether you work in an office, a factory, in education, or retail environment, you are shoulder-to-shoulder with the same people on a regular basis. These people can sometimes become like family. Who better to pray for America with than your coworkers? Our theme for this year, Love One Another, is a perfect theme to encourage everyone to rally around.
