The National Day of Prayer is an annual day of observance held the first Thursday in May, designated by the United States Congress, when people are asked “to turn to God in Prayer and Meditation”. Each year since its inception, the president has signed a proclamation, encouraging all Americans to pray on this day. This date was set back in 1952, however days of prayer have been called for since 1775, when the Continental Congress designated a time of prayer in forming a new nation.
This year that will be on May 1. There will be a gathering on the Courthouse lawn at noon. In case of inclement weather, the prayer service will be held at Immaculate Conception Church. This year’s theme is “One Voice United in Prayer”. It is our hope that you will join us in becoming that “One Voice in Prayer” for our Nation, and for so much more.
