The National Day of Prayer was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. In 1988, the law was unanimously amended by both the House and the Senate and signed into law by President Ronald Reagan on Thursday, May 5, 1988, designating the first Thursday of May as a day of national prayer. Every president since 1952 has signed a National Day of Prayer proclamation.
While students have long participated in the National Day of Prayer, NDP Students seeks to further mobilize students to pray on their campuses on May 2, 2019 at 7:00am local time (or other time as needed). Join us as we seek spiritual awakening for our campuses and our country.
Meet at your school’s campus or wherever you can meet to pray.
