WASHINGTON, D.C. – Across the country, people of all faiths observed the National Day of Prayer by praying for the well-being of the United States and those in leadership roles.
“Today, as Americans observe the National Day of Prayer, it’s a good reminder to set aside time to pray for our country and reflect on the importance of prayer,” Sen. Moran said. “Whether in times of uncertainty, grief or joy, prayer has the power to comfort, and it is encouraging to know that so many individuals are praying for their elected officials, the state of Kansas and our country.”
Congress declared the first Thursday in May as a National Day of Prayer in 1952.
