  • Is the National Day of Prayer exclusively a Christian event?
    Americans of all faiths are encouraged to participate in
    the NDP according to their own traditions.  The Gateway NDP organization is the Christian expression of the NDP in St. Louis, and we pray in the name of Jesus.  Everyone is welcome to attend our events.  Our theme for 2016 is “Wake Up America“, emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to place their faith in the unfailing character of their Creator, who is sovereign over all governments, authorities, and men.  To further highlight our theme, we’ve chosen Isaiah 58:1 as our Scripture for this year:   “Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet.”.
