National Day of Prayer

In 1775 the Continental Congress allocated a time for
prayer in forming a new nation. Over the years, there have
been calls for a day of prayer, including from President
Abraham Lincoln in 1863. On April 17, 1952, President
Harry Truman signed a bill proclaiming the National Day of
Prayer into law in the United States. President Reagan
amended the law in 1988, designating the first Thursday
of May each year as the National Day of Prayer.

The National Prayer Committee was formed in the United
States in 1972. It went on to create the National Day of
Prayer Task Force, with the intended purpose of coordinating
events for the National Day of Prayer.  According to the Legal
Information Institute, the President shall issue each
year a proclamation designating the first Thursday in May as a
National Day of Prayer on which the people of the United
States may turn to God in prayer and meditation at
churches, in groups, and as individuals.
