7 Specific Updates on the National Day of Prayer Ministry
On Monday, I released an important article relating to the National Day of Prayer ministry. As I serve as President of this ministry while serving here as your Senior Pastor, please pray for me. I want you to take the time to read about all that is going on. Again, pray for us and join us in this pivotal ministry in our nation.
Feed the 479 is Our Strategy to Help Feed Our Area
Feed the 479 is a ministry of Compassion Northwest Arkansas, and is a choice food pantry for the food insecure in our area. So many of us give to and volunteer for Blessing Baskets over the holidays, but physical hunger is not limited to holiday seasons. You can help provide food for families year-round by giving directly to Feed the 479 over and above the first tenth of all God has entrusted to you. You can make a one-time donation or give on a recurring basis through Cross Church. Watch this video from last Sunday to learn more about Feed the 479.
See You Sunday,
Ronnie W. Floyd
DIGITAL EQUIPPING releases today on the nationaldayofprayer.org website. NDP EQUIPPING releases a total of twenty-nine videos that will inform you, instruct you, and inspire you.
With thousands of volunteers located across the country, this NDP EQUIPPING is long overdue. The all-stars in this ministry are the thousands of volunteers who network with us to mobilize unified public prayer for America on the National Day of Prayer. Now we can better prepare our volunteers who give their time and passion to this great cause for America and the Lord.
It is perfect timing for this ministry offering, as we are within four months of our 2018 National Day of Prayer on May 3. At whatever level you serve with us, this will help you. If you want to create a prayer observance in your town or city, this training will tell you how.
NDP Equipping Will Inform, Instruct, and Inspire
Let me explain how these videos will work.
- INFORM: Some videos will simply share matters of information you need to know in your role as a volunteer for the National Day of Prayer.
- INSTRUCT: Our digital equipping has this overall purpose in mind. We want you to know how to do what we are asking of you as a volunteer for the National Day of Prayer.
- INSPIRE: While we believe each of these will have moments of inspiration, some sessions are just intended to encourage you in your prayer life or inspire you by hearing the way others have been blessed by serving as a volunteer for the National Day of Prayer.
The majority of these equipping sessions are timeless. They will always have relevance to the ministry of prayer, equipping you to lead or assist leading a national observance.
Additional videos will be released to add to our equipping catalog.
If people are not inspired to pray, they will not pray. If they are not equipped to pray and to lead others to pray, they will not pray or lead others to pray.
The videos releasing today are 5-15 minutes in length. In the future, others may be longer.

State, County, City, and National Leaders, You Have Assistance Like Never Before
If you are a state, county, city, or national leader for the National Day of Prayer, you now have assistance to enlist and equip new volunteers like never before. People will not engage if they are not informed and equipped.
We must enlist, equip, and empower more people to assist and lead prayer observances on the National Day of Prayer. I promise you, NDP EQUIPPING will help you to do a better job in your role. You will have links to send to volunteers and a place on our website where they can learn. Your ability to begin new observances and support present observances has just multiplied!
Please spend time with these videos yourself, and send them to all of your volunteers in your state, county, city, and region.
1,000 Thank Yous
