The National Day of Prayer is a vital part of our heritage and a catalytic movement rallying prayer for awakening and revival. In 1952, a joint resolution by Congress, signed into law by President Truman, declared an annual National Day of Prayer. In 1988, with the encouragement of the National Prayer Committee, government leaders, and others, the law was amended and signed by President Reagan, permanently setting the day as the first Thursday of every May. Since then, the National Day of Prayer Task Force, made up of tens of thousands of volunteer coordinators, in every state, led first by Vonette Bright, then by Shirley Dobson, Anne Graham-Lotz, Ronnie Floyd, and now Kathy Branzell, has faithfully and strategically mobilized millions in unified public prayer for America each year. As the movement has grown and gained momentum, it has inspired, encouraged, and ignited many other prayer movements across our nation and around the world.
This year, National Day of Prayer is on May 7. Join us at a location near you, or via livestream!
