Pray for our Nation

The National Day of Prayer (NDP) is an annual event established by an act of Congress which encourages Americans to pray for our nation, its people and its leaders. This event began in 1775, when the Continental Congress designated a time for prayer in forming a new nation. In 1863, Abraham Lincoln called for such a day.

Officially, the NDP was established as an annual event by an act of Congress in 1952 and was signed into law by President Truman. The law was amended in 1988 and signed by President Ronald Reagan, establishing the NDP as the first Thursday in May each year.

Our Founding Fathers designed our nation with Divine help and blessings. As a nation we need to continue to seek God’s guidance and blessings. Please pray for our Armed Forces, our nation, our government and all our citizens. God Bless America!

 “I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”

Psalm 91:2
