Pray with Christians Around the World Today!

Today is the National Day of Prayer here in the United States, a tradition that we’ve celebrated for almost 150 years!

The National Day of Prayer tradition predates the founding of the United States of America, evidenced by the Continental Congress’ proclamation in 1775 setting aside a day of prayer.

In 1952, Congress established an annual day of prayer and, in 1988, that law was amended, designating the National Day of Prayer as the first Thursday in May. It’s a day to humbly come before God, seeking His guidance for our leaders and His grace upon us as His people.

The annual National Broadcast, co-hosted by Rev. A.R. Bernard and NDP Task Force president Kathy Branzell, will air on television, radio, websites, social media and streaming services, and will be broadcast at 8 p.m. ET. For station and social

In 2023, the Lord poured out immense creativity on the tens of thousands of volunteers who planned over 60,000 events in all 50 states in the U.S.! Here in 2024, we will see thousands of Americans faithfully join local prayer rallies—all crying out praises and prayers in accordance with the power and promises found in the Bible.
