The nation seems to be in a fragile state, said Paul Batura, vice president of communications for Focus on the Family, a nonprofit organization in Colorado Springs that used to house the task force that oversees the National Day of Prayer.
“There’s a lot of things to be burdened by — the overall place of the nation, racial relations, the contentiousness between political parties, the divisiveness, the health of the family, the challenges with children that have been exacerbated by the pandemic.”
Focus on the Family staff will gather Thursday morning to pray.
“God’s not a cosmic butler tending to our needs,” Batura said. “But so often we become so heavily burdened by our problems, we don’t remember there is a creator of the universe to hear us, to recognize us. The National Day of Prayer is a good reminder.” From the Colorado Springs Gazette.
