Pray for Nebraska

As we continue to recover from flooding, the effects of our state’s most widespread natural disaster will be felt in the months and years to come. Even though great challenges lie ahead, Nebraskans have proven themselves time and again to be strong and resilient. No matter how tough the challenge, we rise to meet it. This time, we will do it again, and we will rebuild bigger and better than before.

One of the keys to Nebraska’s strong communities are our vibrant churches and faith traditions. That’s why I have declared Sunday, April 7th as a “Statewide Day of Prayer” in Nebraska. As Nebraskans roll up our sleeves and work together on recovery efforts, it is important that each of us ask God for wisdom in seeing and best responding to the needs around us. Whatever your tradition, Nebraskans are encouraged to lift our state up in prayer this weekend.

On Sunday and in the coming weeks, we are also encouraging churches, communities, organizations, and individuals who want to organize a volunteer effort to get involved. You can visit to learn more.
