National Day of Prayer

A joint resolution of congress and President Harry S. Truman signed into law in 1952 The National Day of Prayer In 1988 the law was amended by both the House and Senate and Ronald Reagan signed into law May 5, 1988. The amendment stated that the first Thursday of May would be known as The National Day of Prayer. Each year since 1952 the president of the United States would sign a National Day of Prayer proclamation. 

Reasons for the National Day of Prayer is to bring all people together. The hope is that bridges between opposing person and political parties will be created. Prayer helps us to remember that we are created in God's image and He desires us to represent Him every where we go. The theme in 2018 for the National Day of Prayer is Pray for America. 

 "Making every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace."
The goal is to have individuals, churches and spiritual leaders in America to come together to be unified in prayer. The greatest need of our country is to be able to come together in prayer. 
"There is no great movement of God that has ever occurred that does not begin with the extraordinary prayer of God's people." Dr. Ronnie Floyd
