Event Details


National Day of Prayer 2021

  • May

Grab your lunch and join us to celebrate the 2021 National Day of Prayer on May 6 at 12:15 p.m.

The theme for 2021 is “LORD pour out Your LOVE, LIFE, and LIBERTY.” We are praying and proclaiming the promise from the theme verse, 2 Corinthians 3:17, “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”

We will pray for the issues affecting our world and community at large, as well as issues specific to our West Michigan community. We also welcome your personal prayer requests during this time. Prayer is Powerful. And we know “where two or more gather in My name, there I am with them,” Matthew 18:20.

Please join us in a time of prayer and gathering. Our prayer requests are below if you're unable to join us for the virtual event.



This virtual event will be hosted online through Zoom. All registrants will receive the access link and password in the confirmation email.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Heather Osterink by phone, 616-588-8753, or email,
