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.

The theme for this year is “Exalt the Lord, who has established us,” based on Colossians 2:6-7. 


Why is it important?

We have bold access to His throne and passionate confidence as we pray – because HE HAS ESTABLISHED US in this nation and is working in the heavenlies to accomplish all that He has purposed – as we PRAY FOR AMERICA!

How can I be involved?

Pray throughout the day, wherever you are, whatever you are doing. Specifically, we as a prayer and worship team at The River ask you to take action by signing up for a 15-minute time slot during the day during which you are committing pray. You can do this individually, with friends, or with your family. We are not meeting in person for the event, but we are committing to covering the entire day in prayer - with your help!
