About the Holiday

The National Day of Prayer is a day which people turn to God in prayer and meditation at churches, in groups, and as individuals, especially praying for the country and leaders. On April 17, 1952, President Harry S. Truman signed a bill proclaiming that any following presidents must choose a date each year for a National Day of Prayer, but in 1988 Ronald Regan made it a fixed holiday to be celebrated on the first Thursday in May.
