National Day of Prayer
3 May 2012 - 12:00
Prayer is America’s priceless heritage. Our founding fathers used prayer and the Bible as the basis for many of their decisions.
In 1952, Congress established the National Day of Prayer as an annual event by a joint resolution of Congress and signed by President Truman.
In 1988, this law was amended and signed by President Reagan, citing the first Thursday in May as the official National Day of Prayer.
The United States is the only country in the world that has an official day of prayer – a special time set aside for its people to seek God’s guidance.
Join us in song and prayer for our nation and its leaders in government, church, military, family, education, media and business. Light refreshment follows.
This Thursday, May 3, from 12:00 to 1:00 at the Fairway City Park (on Mission Rd. @ 52nd Street).
Please spread the word.
