National Day of Prayer

The National Day of Prayer is a designated day for prayer and reflection held on the first Thursday of May. Rooted in tradition since 1775, when the Continental Congress set aside a time for prayer in the creation of a new nation, this observance has evolved into an annual event. Millions of Americans unite on the National Day of Prayer to offer prayers for their nation, its leaders, and its citizens. This day provides a distinctive opportunity to pause, contemplate our blessings and challenges, and express gratitude for all that we have received.
