(Worthy News)-- With "Lord, Hear Our Cry" as its theme, organizers of the 64th National Day of Prayer invited Americans to raise their voices in prayer on Thursday, the Washington Times reported.
The themes of humility, repentance and hope were sounded throughout the lengthy service held on Capitol Hill.
"This is a time to cry out to God," said the Rev. Jack Graham, pastor of the Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas.
"God doesn't need America," he told the packed room in the Cannon House Office Building. "But America desperately needs God." --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/may/5/national-day-of-prayer-to-be-celebrated-thursday-l/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
