Did you know? On April 17, 1952, President Harry Truman signed a bill proclaiming the National Day of Prayer into law in the United States. President Reagan amended the law in 1988, designating the first Thursday of May each year as the National Day of Prayer. The National Prayer Committee was formed in the U.S. in 1972 and created the National Day of Prayer Task Force to coordinate events. The theme for the 2019 National Day of Prayer on May 2 is Love One Another which comes from the words of Jesus in John 13:34, “Love one another. Just as I have loved you.” The hope is that individuals, churches, and spiritual leaders in America, will humble ourselves and unify in prevailing prayer for the next great move of God in America. First United will be recognizing the National Day of Prayer and extending it to its service on Sunday, May 5 at 10:15 a.m. Join us, any and all denominations – share in prayer, hear about different types of prayer, make prayer part of your day.
