Dr. Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church in North Texas, will lead the country in prayer as Honorary Chairman for the 2015 National Day of Prayer next month.
A minister for more than four decades, Dr. Graham leads the nearly 40,000-member Prestonwood Baptist Church, which includes three locations in the Dallas area. He is also the voice of PowerPoint Ministries, a radio and television broadcast ministry that shares the message of the gospel proclaimed from the Prestonwood pulpit throughout the world.
The National Day of Prayer Task Force, led by Shirley Dobson, named Dr. Graham as chair for the 64th annual prayer event on Thursday, May 7, in Washington, D.C.
“I’m so pleased to have Pastor Jack Graham serving with me as our 2015 Honorary Chairman,” Mrs. Dobson said. “And together, we are calling our great nation to repentance and prayer.”
Mrs. Dobson said the theme this year is Lord, Hear Our Cry, drawn from 1 Kings 8:28.
“We would like to invite all Christians to cry out together with us on May 7,” she said, “asking God to bring us spiritual awakening in America.”
Dr. Graham said he is grateful and humbled to lead the country in prayer “for such a time as this.”
“More than anything, in this desperate hour, may our hearts cry out to God for the healing of our nation’s spiritual brokenness,” he said. “May Jesus be exalted and may God’s people be awakened to a new obedience to fulfill the Great Commission.”
