The National Day of Prayer Tradition predates the founding of the United States of America when the Continental Congress issued a proclamation setting aside a day of prayer in 1775. In 1952 Congress formally established an annual day of prayer and in 1988, the law was amended designating the National day of Prayer to be the first Thursday in May.
Our theme for 2016 is “Wake Up America”, emphasizing the need for individuals, to place their faith in the unfailing character of their Creator, who is sovereign over all governments, authorities, and men. To further highlight our theme, we’ve chosen Isaiah 58:1a as our Scripture for this year: “Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet”.
Please join others from all over the city at City Hall on Thursday May 5th, 2016 at noon for the 64th annual National Day of Prayer.
