The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the
first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation.
It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the
United States Congress, and signed into law
by President Harry S. Truman.
Millions will unite in prayer as thousands of events
will take place from coast to coast.
The theme for this year is “Prayer… America’s Hope”
and is based on the verse from Psalm 33:22 which states:
“May your unfailing love rest upon us,
O Lord, even as we put our hope in you.”
