Join us as the Evangelical Ministerial Fellowship of Frederick observes the 62nd National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 2, 2013 with its 5th Annual Prayer Breakfast at the Dutch's Daughter Restaurant, 581 Himes Avenue in Frederick, Maryland, beginning at 7:00 a.m.
What is the National Day of Prayer?
The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman.
Why Should I Participate in the National Day of Prayer?
Like Thanksgiving or Christmas, this day has become a national observance placed on all Hallmark calendars and observed annually across the nation. Every year, local, state, and federal observances are held from sunrise in Maine to sunset in Hawaii, uniting Americans from all socio-economic, political and ethnic backgrounds in prayer for our nation. It is estimated that over two million people attend more than 30,000 observances. At state capitols, county court houses, on the steps of city halls, and in schools, businesses, churches and homes, people stop their activities and gather for prayer.
Join us as we pray for our nation and for our national, state and local leaders.
