Throughout the nation it has become customary to celebrate National Day of Prayer the first Thursday in May. In Denville, this year, National Day of Prayer will take place May 7, 2015 at 12:00 noon (as the rest of the nation) in Denville Township Municipal Building. It is an interfaith observance.
Denville National Day of Prayer is sponsored by Denville P.R.I.D.E Council. The theme for the event, this year, is “Lord, Hear Our Cry”. The service is 15 minutes long, followed by the serving of light refreshments.
As relayed by Denville P.R.I.D.E council the history of the United States National Day of Prayer is as follows. Even before the formation of an independent United States the Continental Congress, in 1775, issued a proclamation setting a day of prayer aside. In 1952 a joint resolution of the United States established the day of prayer as an annual event, signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. In 1988 President Ronald Reagan amended the law by designating that the first Thursday in May, each year, as the National Day of Prayer.
