PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., March 18, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ -- Faith Dialogue, a ministry committed to the unity of the Body of Christ has released a video campaign designed to encourage Christians to take this years National Day of Prayer to heart and pray #InJesusName. The video is on Faith Dialogue's YouTube Channel www.youtube.com/watch?v=4AKRSbZ5exI and at www.faithdialogue.org/prayer.
Pastor Ken Behr, the founder and director of Faith Dialogue says that this year is a great time to get serious about praying and "Turn to God in prayer and mediation." The 2-minute video reminds all Christians that the National Day of Prayer is Thursday, May 7th and that everyone can participate by following a simple three-step plan:
- Have your local church open for the day for prayer
- Pray and use the hash tag #InJesusName
- Wear the cross or some other Christian symbol that day
Pastor Behr remarked that he receives many invitations to leadership conferences, church seminars and denominational gathering but rarely receives an invitation or is given an easy way to participate in the National Day of Prayer.
"There are a couple of great Christian organizations encouraging Christians to pray but we thought we could also join in the effort and make it simple. We demonstrate that the Body of Christ is one when we come together to pray. And, there is no easier way to pray than praying with the people in your local church."
Faith Dialogue is sending personal invitations to over three thousand church leaders and is talking directly with denominational heads and the Christian media. "Jesus tells us to pray in His name (John 14:3); the Apostle Paul said to pray without ceasing (1 Thess. 5:17); and Timothy said we are to pray for Kings and for all in authority (1 Tim 2:2). Its time as Christians that we all pray on May 7th," said Behr.
Faith Dialogue is encouraging every church to open their doors and participate in the National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 7th and is also asking all Christians that use social media to use the hashtag #InJesusName to remind others to pray.
"We are told to pray in Jesus name because the Bible clearly tells us that the name of Jesus is above all other names," added Behr. "We demonstrate the unity of the Body of Christ when we pray, In Jesus Name."
