The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Although, the City of Chesapeake National Day of Prayer program has been canceled, we can still reach around the world in unified public prayer for our nation. Yes, we are sheltered due to the measures taken to combat the COVID-19 pandemic; however, the Day of Prayer, the Day to Pray together on one accord, for Chesapeake and the nation, has not been canceled.
