Irvine National Day of Prayer 2021

Join us this year for Irvine’s National Day of Prayer as we gather together in unity to pray for, encourage and bless our city. This year’s theme is love, life, and freedom, and comes from 2 Corinthians 3:17, “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”

What is the National Day of Prayer?

The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. The National Day of Prayer has great significance for us as a nation as it enables us to recall and to teach the way in which our founding fathers sought the wisdom of God when faced with critical decisions. It stands as a call for us to humbly come before God, seeking His guidance for our leaders and His grace upon us as a people.

Irvine’s Vision for National Day of Prayer

Glorify God and bless our nation and city—its leaders and its people.


Church and ministry leaders will gather to praise God for who he is, encourage personal repentance and righteousness, and pray a special blessing for Irvine civic, First responder, and education leaders.

We will also pray for renewal, freedom, and for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit to equip and enable us for serving and loving our neighbors in our city. We will humble ourselves in unity for the next great move of God in the city of Irvine.
