Contact: Kathy Coleman, Founder, Worldwide Mom's Day of Prayer, 479-452-6215, [email protected]
FORT SMITH, Ark., Jan. 14, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ -- Worldwide Mom's Day of Prayer (MDOP) will host its first "Blanketing Our Nation in Prayer" event in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, January 19, 2013. Led by founder Kathy J. Coleman, mothers will gather together on the East Capitol Grounds of the nation's capitol from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. to pray for the leaders, families and children of all 50 U.S. states.
Over the past 16 years, MDOP events have been held in several states and foreign countries. This will be the first time for the event to be held in Washington. The 2013 goal is to have MDOP events in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., on the same day. With eight days remaining before the event, MDOP events are scheduled in 41 U.S. states and 5 foreign countries.
Coleman received inspiration for the "Blanketing Our Nation in Prayer" event soon after the November 2012 presidential election. "God has a plan for our children, our families and our nation. We must stay focused on who God is because Satan is determined for us to focus on his lies of who God is not." Coleman believes "It's time for moms to draw a line in the sand and stand up and pray for our nation to return to the principals and morals this country was founded upon."
Women attending the D.C. event will be divided into 25 prayer teams. Each team will receive a card with the names of two states written on it and be asked to pray for the children, families, marriages and government leaders of each states as well as our president and vice-president.
Attendance for "Blanketing Our Nation in Prayer" is limited due to Capitol Grounds and National Parks regulations. Women interested in participating should contact Worldwide Mom's Day of Prayer for reservations, (479) 452-6215 or [email protected].
Mom's Day of Prayer (MDOP) was founded in 1998 by Kathy J. Coleman based on the scripture of 1 Samuel 1:27-28 (NIV), "I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the LORD. For his whole life, he will be given over to the LORD."
