Amata’s Statement for the National Day of Prayer
Washington, D.C. – Thursday, Congresswoman Aumua Amata released the following statement in recognition of the National Day of Prayer:
“On this National Day of Prayer, we all have much to be thankful for as part of this great country. In American Samoa, we recently observed our patriotic Flag Day celebrations, and that wonderful week always includes a community church service that helps us remember to be grateful to God for our lives, families and country.
“As always, there are momentous events throughout the world, and today, we’re reminded to pray for God’s guiding hand on those bearing the weight of responsibility to make decisions that could affect us all. The concept of a National Day of Prayer has a long tradition in the United States, and I pray that this year it could be a special day of unity and shared love of country that could bless our entire nation over the year to come.”
