Throughout our history and in times of trial, Americans have sought God for wisdom, courage, direction, and comfort. Today during these unprecedented times when our nation and its citizens face enormous challenges, the need is great for us to humbly seek God’s guidance for our leaders and His grace upon us as a people. The 2020 National Day of Prayer is an opportunity for such a time as this.
Local Observance of the National Day of Prayer
For 27 years the National Day of Prayer Observance has been held as a public gathering for the citizens of Roanoke, Trophy Club, and Westlake. Due to current restrictions, our observance this year will be live streamed on May 7 at 12 noon at the link above. Please join us online as pastors from local churches lead prayers and community leaders convey messages of faith, hope, and encouragement. Thousands of similar gatherings coordinated by National Day of Prayer Task Force Coordinators will also take place across our nation on this day to unite millions of people in prayer for our country.
Significance of the National Day of Prayer
The National Day of Prayer has been a vital part of our heritage since the first call to prayer in 1775, when the Continental Congress asked the colonies to pray for wisdom in forming a nation. In 1952, a joint resolution by Congress declared an annual observance of the National Day of Prayer. In 1988, the law was amended, permanently setting the day as the first Thursday of every May. The National Day of Prayer Task Force was formed in 1989 as a privately funded organization to mobilize unified public prayer for America representing a Judeo-Christian expression of the national observance.
