National Day of Prayer
Time & Location
About The Event
Please join millions of Christians praying at their county courthouses Thursday, May 2, 2019, for the 68th observance of the National Day of Prayer.
The National Day of Prayer happens because, as Americans, we have a law in place requiring our President to proclaim a National Day of Prayer each year on the first Thursday in May. We have the right to publicly pray in the name of Jesus at the courthouse. The law reads:
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. (Public Law 105-225)
