Dr. James Dobson Calls on Americans to Participate in the National Day of Prayer

May 4, 2021 — This Thursday, the citizens of America will participate in the 70th annual National Day of Prayer, and I can't recall a time in recent history when our country was in more desperate need of God's intervention.

In 1952, the United States Congress passed legislation directing the president to set aside one day each year as a National Day of Prayer. President Harry S. Truman signed the bill into law, and thereafter issued a proclamation urging that "all of us, in our churches, in our homes, and in our hearts, may beseech God to grant us wisdom to know the course which we should follow, and strength and patience to pursue that course steadfastly."

My dear wife, Shirley, was chairperson of the National Day of Prayer Task Force for 25 years, and she shares my belief that we are facing a time unlike any other. It seems the very foundations of America are crumbling and our culture is embracing lawlessness and depravity. These are truly dark days.

But the darkness will not prevail! Though I fear what may become of this nation, there is one thing I know with great certainty: The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob lives! In Him we have placed our hope and trust. We will praise Him, and call on Him to bring healing to our land, to mend what is torn, and to restore what has been lost.

I urge you to join us on Thursday, uniting in prayer with brothers and sisters across the nation. If ever there was a time that America needed prayer, it is now. We serve a good and powerful God—One who can accomplish all things. Should we ever cease to plead for His intervention?

Will The United Nations Be Your Doctor?

Opposition is building to a proposed World Health Organization (WHO) pandemic treaty. JDFI has been sounding the alarm for months, but the Biden administration has continued its negotiations with WHO. Under the proposed changes, WHO, a United Nations entity, would have sweeping new powers over public health authorities and elected officials in the U.S. and around the world. In addition, all signs point to the treaty not being sent to the Senate for ratification, but being agreed to, unilaterally, by the White House.

The Blessing of Living in America

Do you think it was a surprise to God that you were born in America, or have had the good fortune of legally immigrating to America? Of course, He wasn't surprised. In fact, the Lord chose to give you the greatest blessing anybody can possibly have by beginning your life here in a nation built on the truth that your liberty comes from the God who created you.

Religionless Christianity

Our friend, Eric Metaxas, is quickly becoming a modern Paul Revere for the American Church. On the heels of his 2022 book, Letter to the American Church, which described the disturbing similarities between the sleep-walking church today and the German church of the 1930s, Metaxas is sounding the alarm again. In Religionless Christianity: God's Answer to Evil, Eric warns that the hour is extremely late for God's people to confront the tidal wave of evil engulfing America.
