LAFOLLETTE, TN (SPECIAL TO WLAF) – In 1952, a joint resolution of the United States Congress established a National Day of Prayer. In 1988, President Reagan set that day as the first Thursday in May. Today’s ceremony starts at 6pm at the Ball Farm Event Center.

On this day, Americans from all walks of life join together around the country to call out to God for Him to work in and through our country.

Today, May 4, we ask you to join us for this day of prayer.

The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) Executive Committee has created a prayer guide for you and your church to pray for our churches, our Convention, and our country on the National Day of Prayer.

This prayer guide is available for download. We encourage you to use it and join us in prayer for our nation next today. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 05/04/2023-6AM)
