TBT Throw Back Thursday This Day in History: National Day of Prayer

Today, in Throw Back Thursday, and current day events, is the National Day of Prayer.

Of course, every day is a great day to pray, but the National day of Prayer has brought the entire nation together before God for years.

The National day of Prayer is held every year on the first Thursday in May. Since its creation in 1952 by a joint resolution of the US Congress and signed into law by President harry S. Truman, the day has been celebrated by people of all faiths to come together in prayer for our nation.

According to the National Day of Prayer organization's task force site, there have been 142 presidential national calls to pray, 65 Presidential Proclamations for a National Day of Prayer, and at least 1,259 state and federal calls for national prayer since 1775.

Will you be celebrating the National Day of Prayer?

The National day of Prayer site lists community events across America that are open for you to join others in prayer. Of course, you are also welcome to silently pray alone or as a family.

What will you pray about today?
