My Prayer for Venezuela

“I pray, Dear Heavenly Father, that ‘May Day! May Day! May Day!’ will become ‘May Day’ in Venezuela today!”

‘Help Me!’ ( ‘Ayúdame!’ in Spanish); ( ‘M’aider’ in French).

‘M’aider’ when pronounced in French sounds like “May Day” in English.

“May Day! May Day! May Day!” was chosen in 1923 as easily recognized voice procedure words to signal a life threatening emergency in the air or at sea. Used initially by French and British pilots, it is now an internationally recognized distress call. It has nothing to do with the first of May.

May Day is a public holiday usually celebrated on 1 May. It is an ancient Northern Hemisphere spring festival and a traditional spring holiday in many cultures. Dances, singing, and cake are usually part of the festivities.
