Recognizing the National Day of Prayer

We are looking forward to the National Day of Prayer on May 6 as an opportunity to lift up local and national ministries. 

“When Rev. Charlie Byers started producing The Gospel Tide Hour in 1946, he had no way of knowing how far the ministry would stretch,” said Director Don Shenk. “We’ve been blessed for the past 75 years because of the prayer and support of our partners in America, and we are pleased to be able to honor that by offering the same prayer and support to other ministries around us.”

Though we no longer broadcast in the United States, we understand that this nation is in need of the Word of God as much as any nation. “America has become a secular country, and the souls here are just as much in need of Christ as the souls in Nigeria, India, or Pakistan,” Shenk said. “As The Tide reaches out internationally, we are proud to partner with ministries working on the national front.”

The National Day of Prayer theme this year is 2 Corinthians 3:17: “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” Because the Spirit provides such freedom to know the Lord, our prayer is that many in America and across the world will feel the Spirit and turn to Him with softened hearts, ready to receive and meditate on the Gospel.
