The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday in May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. President Harry S. Truman signed the resolution passed by Congress in 1952 declaring the first annual day of prayer.
This year’s event is again sponsored by the P.A.C.T. group (Prayer and Action in Christ Together) working under the auspices of the Bowling Green Ministerial Association.
The community is invited to attend by gathering at the war memorial on the Bowling Green square at 12:15 p.m. on Thursday, May 2, to stand in prayer and support of our nation and communities. In event of rain, we will gather at the First Presbyterian Church on the corner of Centennial and Court Streets.
This year’s theme is “Pray for America” based on Matthew 12:21. Please join us for the 62nd annual observance of the National Day of Prayer.
