Today is The National Day of Prayer! This holiday is celebrated annually on the first Thursday of May. The theme for this year's event is "Pray God's Glory Across The Earth."

This holiday was established in 1952 by President Harry S. Truman. In 1988, President Ronald Reagan designated the first Thursday in May as the annual observance of The National Day of Prayer.
