N.C. Governor Pat McCrory has proclaimed this week (April 28-May 4) a Week of Prayer for North Carolina. A resolution passed unanimously by the N.C. House and Senate – House Joint Resolution 599 – also calls North Carolina to prayer.
Part of the resolution reads: “Whereas, we join with the authors of our Constitution being grateful to Almighty God for the existence of our liberties, and we acknowledge our dependence upon Him for the continuance of His blessings to us and our posterity; and Whereas, our State has great challenges before us; we are dependent on God and need prayer.”
And May 2 is the 62nd annual observance of the National Day of Prayer.
