Family Policy Alliance of New Mexico Partners with New Mexico Prays for National Day of Prayer

May 2

ALBUQUERQUE – Tomorrow, thousands of Christians will gather at Albuquerque Civic Plaza for the annual National Day of Prayer organized by New Mexico Prays, in partnership with Family Policy Alliance of New Mexico. Special guests will include Pastor Skip Heitzig of Calvary of Albuquerque, Archbishop John Wester of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, other New Mexico pastors, and several elected officials.

“At Family Policy Alliance of New Mexico, we believe in the power of prayer and we are honored to be participating in this year’s gathering in Albuquerque,” said Pastor Vince Torres, Executive Director of Family Policy Alliance of New Mexico and Executive Pastor of Blaze Christian Fellowship (Santa Fe). “As a public policy organization, we recognize the need for government reform, but as a Christian ministry, we recognize the need for something much greater, and that is a spiritual revival in our state.”

“In the Bible, there are many examples of God’s people gathering together in a solemn assembly to seek the Lord and present themselves to Him,” said Rev. Brian Alarid, Co-Chairman of New Mexico Prays and Lead Pastor of Passion Church (Albuquerque). “The National Day of Prayer is a time for the body of Christ to join together and pray for our city, state, and nation.”

The National Day of Prayer was established in 1952 by a joint resolution, passed by the U.S. Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Since that time, every U.S. President has signed a proclamation inviting people of faith to pray for the nation.

WHEN: Thursday, May 3, 2018 – 11:30 a.m.

Albuquerque Civic Plaza, 1 Civic Plaza NW, Albuquerque, NM
