National Day of Prayer Event

National Day of Prayer NEws Flash

Come join us for a community-wide Observance of the National Day of Prayer for the citizens of Roanoke, Trophy Club, and Westlake and surrounding areas on Thursday, May 2 at 12 noon at the Fellowship United Methodist Church in Trophy Club. 

As pastors from local churches lead prayers on behalf of our nation and its people, thousands of similar prayer gatherings will take place on this day all across our nation as millions of Americans take this opportunity to pray for our country. There will be inspirational worship music, Presentation of Colors by the Roanoke Fire Department Honor Guard, and recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance by veterans from the Roanoke VFW Post No. 5074. In addition, the mayors of Roanoke, Trophy Club, and Westlake will present proclamations declaring “A Day of Prayer” in their respective municipalities to coincide with the National Day of Prayer.

About the National Day of Prayer: The National Day of Prayer is 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. The call to prayer has continued throughout America’s history both in times of conflict and peace, including President Lincoln’s proclamation of a day of “humiliation, fasting, and prayer” in 1863. In 1952, President Harry S. Truman signed a joint resolution with Congress that declared an annual observance of the National Day of Prayer. In 1988, President Ronald Reagan amended the law to permanently set the day as the first Thursday of every May.
