The National Day of Prayer is a vital part of America’s heritage. Since the first call to prayer in 1775, when the Continental Congress asked the colonies to pray for wisdom in forming a nation, the call to prayer has continued through history, including President Lincoln’s proclamation of a day of “humiliation, fasting, and prayer” in 1863. In 1952, a joint resolution by Congress, signed by President Truman, declared an annual, national day of prayer. In 1988, the law was amended and signed by President Reagan, permanently setting the day as the first Thursday of every May.
The National Day of Prayer is a time for all to recall and to teach the way in which the founding fathers sought the wisdom of God when faced with critical decisions. It stands as a call to humbly come before God, seeking His guidance for leaders, and His grace upon us as a nation.
