May 2018 – On May 3, National Day of Prayer participants will be calling the body of Christ to unity as it prays for our fractured nation. The NDP observance was established in 1952 with a congressional joint resolution signed by President Harry S. Truman. Every president since then has signed a National Day of Prayer proclamation.
The first Thursday in May was designated the official NDP in 1988, when both the house and senate amended the law to that effect. President Ronald Reagan signed it into law.
“There is no great movement of God that has ever occurred that does not begin with the extraordinary prayer of God’s people,” said Dr. Ronnie Floyd, president of NDP. Floyd oversees the task force which governs the privately funded organization.
“It’s not too late to plan and carry out an event or gathering in your city, your neighborhood, or just with your family,” said AFA president Tim Wildmon. “Let’s pray for unity among God’s people and in our nation.”
