The first Thursday in May has been a National Day of Prayer since Harry S. Truman proclaimed it in 1952, signing a bill to introduce it Congress. However Congress has honored Prayer since it set assigned time for prayer with each meeting beginning in 1775. Interestingly, Congress requires each President to proclaim a National Day of Prayer each year since 1988. Whether you believe in God or not, you have to admit about the only chance this world has anymore is through prayer.
How to celebrate – Pray everyday, let alone once a year. Think about it, you prove nothing trying to prove there is no God. Honor others beliefs.
Isn’t it funny how when all else fails us that we generally turn to prayer. Maybe if we started there we would be far better off in the long run, or the short run. Today is a day that we should all pray, it would be nice if we prayed for world peace and an end of hunger and for things the world needs but more often than not, our own concerns get in the way and if we do pray, it’s for ourselves or those things directly concerning us.Today is always celebrate on the first Friday in March and was created by Mary Ellen Fairchild James of Brooklyn, Ny in 1887.
How to celebrate – Say a prayer today. Form a prayer group. Don’t just pray to ask for something, pry to be thankful as well.
