National Day of Prayer

Prayer is one of our most powerful connections with God

Everyone has the ability to pray regardless of age, gender or race. God hears the prayers of the 5-year-old boy in Kenya as clearly as he hears the prayers of the 75-year-old woman in Texas.

God hears your prayers

He gives you the strength to be the answer to someone else’s prayers. For it is through acts of service to our friends, neighbors and strangers that we have the chance to emulate the love God has for all his people.

Prayer and acts of service combine for ministry

In his book, Hope Now, Buckner International President and CEO Albert Reyes explores our ability to meet the practical needs of people as well as the spiritual needs. He promotes a holistic approach to ministry that brings together evangelism with social ministry and social justice.

Faith-based nonprofits, like Buckner International, benefit when prayer and acts of service are combined to minister to vulnerable children, families and senior adults.

Prayer can impact change every day

The first Thursday of May is National Day of Prayer, but prayer can impact change throughout the year. Because the more you pray, the more God puts in your heart to serve others and answer their prayers.

Do you want to make a difference?

We invite you to pray for the vulnerable children and families Buckner serves every day. If you want to combine your prayer with acts of service, check out all the opportunities to volunteer in your own community
