SPRINGFIELD – With the state in the midst of a crippling budget crisis and little hope of agreement on the horizon, this week Governor Bruce Rauner issued a proclamation for May 5th to be recognized in Illinois as the 65th annual National Day of Prayer.
"…Millions of men and women unite to exercise the freedom to gather in prayer with thankfulness while seeking guidance, provision, protection and purpose for the benefit of every individual and our state as a whole," the proclamation says.
Over 30 events in Illinois recognizing the National Day of Prayer are listed on the group's website, from Peoria to Plainfield to Bloomington, Springfield and Gifford.
This year's theme will be "Wake Up America!" based on Isaiah 58:1a,"Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet."
Bruce sees the reality, the only way the mess Mikey Madigan and the democrats made will be fixed is with God’s help.
God help us!
Is it okay to pray that Bruce Rauner stops opposing the elimination of the Lt. Governor’s office, which costs taxpayers $1.6million per year? And is it okay to pray that he stops threatening Republicans who support eliminating it..?
I, did not check the list, but is there a Mosque, Synogogue(sp), Wiccan place, Scientology place, a Satanistic place? Budhist, and so many more, so ALL that pray can be involved!!!
Stop your whining, anyone can pray anytime, there doesn’t have to be an event… and besides no one is stopping you from hosting an event if you want to pray to Buddha.
Christianity is by far the most popular religion in Illinois.
