National Day of Prayer

Today is the annual National Day of Prayer. Focus on the Family posted the following note on its Citizen Link on April 30th:

Just four days before the national event, he joins 49 other governors.

After being flooded with phone calls from family advocates around the nation, New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer today joined the other 49 governors in issuing a proclamation supporting Thursday’s observance of the National Day of Prayer (NDP).

Susan Castilla, the New York coordinator for NDP, said she was put off time and time again by the governor’s staff. “It seemed the National Day of Prayer was on the back burner,” she said. “We don’t get phone calls returned. You never hear back. This has kind of been a constant thing.”

A staple of former Gov. George Pataki's tenure — an annual prayer breakfast — is not on the schedule under Spitzer.

As you observe the National Day of Prayer today, please pray specifically for our governor and his staff. Many of us are keenly aware that all true wisdom comes from Almighty God and that those who have difficulty acknowledging this may be separating themselves from the very source of wisdom. This is a serious enough problem for individual citizens but can produce disastrous results in public policy if it is followed by prominent leaders.
