“Prayer is the most powerful resource we have in this life. May we as followers of Christ and citizens of the United States humble ourselves before the only One who blessed the prayers of our forefathers and showered this land with greatness …

May God the Father, the Lord Jesus Christ, be once again exalted in our halls of government, in our sanctuaries of worship, and in human hearts that need His healing touch. Join me in prayer for America on Thursday, May 6, 2010 for the National Day of Prayer”
—Franklin Graham
President and CEO of BGEA and Samaritan’s Purse

The National Day of Prayer was signed into law as a national observance in 1952 by President Harry Truman. Since then, Americans from multiple backgrounds have been overcoming differences to join together and pray for our nation.

This year, as the 59th observance is marked on May 6, Franklin Graham will join Shirley Dobson, National Day of Prayer Chairman, in Washington, D.C. to urge people all over the United States to intercede on behalf of our country.
