1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;
it does not rejoice at wrong but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
As we Celebrate Stars & Stripes Forever, let us also rejoice in our DAR ties of service and friendship.

The NSDAR Day of Prayer is based in determining the Sunday closest to the date of the founding of the DAR, October 11, 1890.
This year it is Sunday, October 9.
The President General has selected the following scripture to guide and encourage us throughout the 2022-2025 administration.
I Corinthians 13: 4-7
We ask God's blessing on our Nation and our leaders, touching their hearts that they may work together with wisdom and courage to bring calm and healing in these troubled times.
NSDAR DAY OF PRAYER SUNDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2021
Because of the faith of many of our founding fathers, public prayer and national days of prayer have a long-standing and significant history in American tradition. The Supreme Court affirmed the right of state legislatures to open their sessions with prayer in Marsh vs. Chambers (1983).
Days of prayer have been called for since 1775, when the Continental Congress designated a time for prayer in forming a new nation.
The date of the NSDAR Day of Prayer is based on determining the Sunday closest to the date of the founding of the DAR, October 11, 1890, the date will vary yearly.
Our President General has selected the following scripture to guide and encourage us throughout the 2019-2022 Administration:
Matthew 5 " Let your light shine before others that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."
As we join together to rise and shine for America, let us keep the scripture in our hearts and minds.
I invite you to pray in your faith and tradition as I pray in mine.
Let us pray together
Almighty God, as we pray together on this beautiful day, we give pause to give Thee thanks for Thy abiding presence in our country. We thank Thee for our forefathers who established this great nation and gave us the opportunity to live in freedom.
We thank Thee for the vision and commitment of our Society's Founders and are grateful for the gift of membership in an organization that for over a century has been a positive force in the lives of so many in this country and around the world.
Guide us and direct us to wise decisions that we might continue the legacy left to us by all those who, throughout our history, labored to preserve our American Heritage and way of life.
We pray Thy continual blessing upon our nation's leaders and on our men and women of our armed forces.
Protect us and keep us always in Thy warm embrace and loving care.
In Thy holy name we pray.
