National Day of Prayer
Prayer for the Nation
The National Day of Prayer (NDP) is an annual event for Americans of all faiths to
take time to pray for our nation and its leaders. The NDP was established by an act

National days of prayer have been called as early as 1775, with the First
Continental Congress. Abraham Lincoln also called for such a day in 1863.
The NDP as an annual event was established by a Joint resolution of Congress
in 1952, and signed into law by President Truman. The law was amended in 1988
and signed by President Reagan to be the first Thursday of May each year.
Our Father and our God, we thank you for the many blessings You have poured
out on America and we praise You for your mercy.
You have said: "Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people".
We confess, O Lord, our national and personal sins.
We repent and ask forgiveness for all actions that dishonor you.
O God, bless our President and other leaders.
Provide them with wisdom and move them to honor You.
Deliver this great nation from all our enemies as we recommit ourselves to trust, serve and obey Your commands.
We pray in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
