National Day of Prayer Event - LIVE STREAM
Thursday, May 6, 2021
2021 marks the 70th anniversary of the Annual National Day of Prayer – seven decades of prayer for our Nation and our Nation’s Leaders.
God has been faithful and constant through the ages and throughout America’s history as we have sought Him for wisdom, courage, direction, and comfort, especially during challenging times. The Annual National Day of Prayer gives us the opportunity to mobilize unified public prayer in our neighborhoods, cities, counties, and states to humbly seek God’s guidance for our leaders and His grace upon us as a people.

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.
