The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for our nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Since its inception, this day has continually united Americans from all socio-economic, political, and ethnic backgrounds in prayer while also encouraging personal repentance and righteousness in the culture. The National Day of Prayer belongs to all Americans and is a day that transcends differences, bringing together citizens to celebrate our most beloved freedom; the freedom to humbly come before God and seek His guidance in prayer.
All are welcome and encouraged to join together for prayer on Thursday, May 3, at 12:00 noon for the North Kingstown observance of the National Day of Prayer. This event will be held at the Veterans Park across the street from the Town Hall on Boston Neck Road. Please note that in case of pouring rain, the event will be moved to Stony Lane Baptist Church, 921 Old Baptist Road. The theme for this year’s event is UNITY: “Making every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.” Ephesians 4:3.
Ray Farnum and Pastor Jim Sole will be participating in this event by leading prayers. Come pray for our nation, meet other Christians, and support our church leaders.
