NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER (U.S.)

In May 1988 the President of the United States signed into law a bill establishing the first Thursday of May as a National Day of Prayer. This year the National Day of Prayer falls on Thursday, May 2.

The synod of the CRC has urged churches in the United States “to observe faithfully any national day of prayer which the United States President publicizes to the nation” (Acts of Synod 1969).

“Our churches must be open to our congregations and our fellow countrymen on such occasions, when God in his providence leads those in civil authority to call our citizenry to pray. We must pray for and with our country” (Acts of Synod 1958).

Joel R. Boot

Executive Director
