What is the National Day of Prayer?

The National Day of Prayer takes place on the first Thursday of May every year, and it invites people from all religious backgrounds to join in prayer for our country. It was first created in 1952 by Congress and was signed into law by Harry S. Truman. Since 1952, every President has signed a proclamation for the National Day of Prayer.

The first call of prayer took place in 1775. The Continental Congress asked each colony to pray for the wisdom needed to form a nation. Since this first prayer, Americans have made it a priority to join together in seeking the wisdom required to keep our country thriving.

The mission:

  • The National Day of Prayer exists to mobilize unified public prayer for America
