National Day of Prayer for the Businesses of America

National Day

2 minute read

In 1930, a small group of Christian businessmen coordinated a series of pre-Easter prayer rallies. Known as Christian Business Men’s Committee, the committee was founded as a response to the urgent need for spiritual revival. They planned a series of evangelistic meetings at the Garrick Theater spanning the course of six weeks. More than 800 showed up to all six sessions to experience life change through their newfound relationship with Christ.

In a similar fashion to The Great Depression that inspired the foundation of CBMC, businesses today are struggling to stay open. The economic stress and social pressures have lead to a rise in depression and suicide rates are reaching historic highs.

If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.  2 Chronicles 7:14

In response to modern stress, we will follow the example of our founders and fall to our knees in prayer. The National Day of Prayer and Fasting for the Businesses of America has been set aside as a time to reflect and turn our hearts to God. On September 16th CBMC members and business leaders from around the country will join together to pray for our nation and for businesses as we look toward recovery.  We will be joined by NFL Head Coach legend Joe Gibbs, Author and Founder of Kingdom Advisors, Ron Blue, as well as many, many others.

Men and women from all sectors of industry are invited to join this virtual event, streaming live on Facebook and YouTube at noon Pacific, Mountain, Central, and Eastern. This Day of Prayer is a time to seek God and find hope for today’s challenging times. Save the date for our September 16th event and get all the detail here.
