The National Day of Prayer was established by an act of Congress in 1952 and it has become a significant activity in the lives of millions of citizens, not only in America, but on military bases and at embassies around the world. Each year the President and all 50 Governors sign proclamations declaring the First Thursday in May as a day of prayer for our nation. With the help of more than 30,000 volunteers, tens of thousands of events are organized and held every year. Although the Day of Prayer is a globally observed solemn assembly, the NDP Task Force unites communities throughout the year through regional training events, community prayer rallies, and special gatherings like The Summons in Washington D.C.
