DialMyCalls, a local voice + SMS broadcasting company, joins America in celebrating the 2013 National Day of Prayer.
Each year on the first Thursday of May (May 2, 2013) we as Americans are asked to “turn to God in prayer and meditation” as we observe a National Day of Prayer – this annual observance has been designated by the United States Congress since 1952. Jupiter, Florida locals, DialMyCalls, will join alongside many of the religions throughout the United States to honor this annual day of worship.
“A large percentage of our members are churches and religious organizations that use our web-based voice broadcasting service to send out prayer requests, automated church calls and weekly reminders to their congregations” says owner David Batchelor. “We help churches easily send hundreds to thousands of messages in seconds with the click of a button – a daunting task that used to take hours to achieve by individually calling congregation members.”
In addition to DialMyCalls and millions of American citizens, Barack Obama, President of the United States, will also be honoring the 2013 National Day of Prayer today. Each year, the current President delivers a proclamation in conjunction with the annual day of prayer – below is a snippet of President Obama’s 2013 proclamation.
Barack Obama – National Day of Prayer 2013 Proclamation:
All of us have the freedom to pray and exercise our faiths openly. Our laws protect these God-given liberties, and rightly so. Today and every day, prayers will be offered in houses of worship, at community gatherings, in our homes, and in neighborhoods all across our country. Let us give thanks for the freedom to practice our faith as we see fit, whether individually or in fellowship.
On this day, let us remember in our thoughts and prayers all those affected by recent events, such as the Boston Marathon bombings, the Newtown, Connecticut shootings, and the explosion in West, Texas. Let us pray for the police officers, firefighters, and other first responders who put themselves in harm’s way to protect their fellow Americans. Let us also pray for the safety of our brave men and women in uniform and their families who serve and sacrifice for our country. Let us come together to pray for peace and goodwill today and in the days ahead as we work to meet the great challenges of our time.
DialMyCalls looks to aid churches and religious organizations all across the United States in spreading their views by offering their voice + SMS broadcasting system. To find out how to start sending out prayer requests and weekly reminders, visit www.DialMyCalls.com today!
