UNDATED – Today is the National Day of Prayer – the annual observance held on the first Thursday of May to lead people into a time of prayer for our nation. The 2021 theme is “Lord, Pour Out Your Love, Life, & Liberty” based on 2 Corinthians 3:17. The nationwide day of prayer was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of Congress and signed into law by President Harry Truman. Yesterday, a National Day of Prayer Launch was held at the Capitol Complex in Harrisburg. Numerous prayer events are scheduled be held today in Lancaster, Hanover, Lebanon, Middletown, New Cumberland, New Bloomfield, New Freedom, West Chester, and York.
