A call to prayer coming your way soon.

By April 4, 2006

USA (MNN)–One month from today, Americans will be observing the 54th annual National Day of Prayer. This year’s theme is: “America, Honor God.”

The Bible Reading Marathon, partnered with Bible Pathway Ministries, is a fixture of the event.

Participants around the country will be reading the Bible aloud, cover to cover, round the clock, finishing as the National Day of Prayer observance begins.

The Bible Reading Marathon founder, Dr. John A. Hash, was convinced that the godless spirit that envelops the world was deeply rooted in its lack of knowledge of the Bible. It’s both a stand of solidarity for the church, and an effort to encourage Biblical literacy.

Bible Reading Marathons have been held in such far corners of the world as Canada, England, France, Germany, India, Holland, Hungary, Mexico, Nigeria, New Zealand, Peru, Sweden, and Russia.

They have also been held throughout the United States — in town squares, on county courthouse steps, and at state capitols.
