National Day of Prayer

May 7, 2015 (6:00 to 7:00 p.m.)

The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman.

The National Day of Prayer has great significance for us as a nation as it enables us to recall and to teach the way in which our founding fathers sought the wisdom of God when faced with critical decisions. It stands as a call for us to humbly come before God, seeking His guidance for our leaders and His grace upon us as a people.

This year, the Upper Keys are invited to join this multi-denominational event on May 7, 2015 to be held outside at the Murray Nelson center from 6:00 to 7:00 pm.  Looking forward to seeing you there and lifting up our world, nation, government (national and local), community, schools, families, etc. in prayer.
