Nyack College DC is one of the seven major sites to serve as a host institution in the nation’s capitol for the National Day of Prayer observance on Thursday, May 7 . Nyack was chosen as the site where prayer will focus on the field of education. The U.S. Senate Chaplain, the Pentagon, and the Family Research Council are among other venues.
Nyack’s own Dr. Richard Gathro (pictured at left) is the DC campus coordinator of the 7 X 7 Prayer for Educators and Education. Details are posted at the nationaldayofprayer.org website.
Mrs. Shirley Dobson, National Chair of the 58th annual National Day of Prayer, announced that the theme, “Prayer…America’s Hope,” is based on Psalm 33:22: “May Your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in You.”
