In 1952, by a joint resolution of Congress, the National Day of Prayer was created and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Every president since 1952 has signed a National Day of Prayer proclamation. On Thursday, May 5, 1988, President Ronald Reagan signed a new law designating the first Thursday of May as a day of national prayer, after both the House and Senate unanimously amended the law.
Through the efforts of the National Day of Prayer Task Force, an estimated 35,000 prayer gatherings are expected to be conducted by about 40,000 volunteers across the United States for the 2018 National Day of Prayer. Several million people are expected to participate in this call to prayer.
The designated theme for the day of prayer is Pray for America - UNITY, based upon Ephesians 4:3 which challenges us to mobilize unified public prayer for America, "Making every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace."
In observance of this National Day of Prayer, here at Intercessory Prayer Ministry International, we will dedicate the first section of May 3, 2018, 9:00 PM – 10:00 PM Monthly Global Prayer Teleconference (MGPT) to praying for spiritual revival in America.
We hope that as millions of people across America turn to the Lord in prayer in a spirit of humility and unity that this will set the stage for another mighty move of God in America.
Join us for this wonderful time of prayer on May 3. For more information on how to join the prayer call, please click here
