“Any day that we are not praying is a day that we are depending on ourselves to make things happen. Spending time in prayer is usually not on our priority list because we’ve got so many things to do. But you can pray as you go, you can pray on the move, you can pray on the drive — you can pray anywhere,” Christian hip-hop artist Lecrae said.
The National Day of Prayer started with John Hancock in 1775 and has been celebrated as an important aspect of the American tradition. Our modern observances were established by Congressional law by unanimous approval and signed by President Truman in 1952. That law was modified in 1988 by Congress and signed by President Reagan, designating the first Thursday in May as the National Day of Prayer.
