Religions of all types are invited to pray for the community and leaders on The National Day of Prayer.

“With the attack on Ukraine and aftermath of so much loss due to a global pandemic, now more than ever, we turn to prayer,” said City Commissioner and Multi-Cultural Advisory Committee Liaison Joy Carter, adding, “Our National Day of Prayer is a 34-year tradition that brings people of all beliefs together to share in a moment of peace and hope for the future.”

The National Day of Prayer was first created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. It is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May. In 1988 President Ronald Reagan designated the first Thursday in May as the annual observance of the National Day of Prayer.

According to the National Day of Prayer Taskforce, it is a day to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and families. The Clergy Coalition of Coral Springs, Parkland, and Northwest Broward, in partnership with the Coral Springs Multi-Cultural Advisory Committee, hosts The National Day of Prayer event on Thursday, May 5 at 7 p.m. inside the Coral Springs Center for the Arts at 2855 Coral Springs Drive.

Participants of all faiths are welcomed to join the community gathering of shared community prayer, where young members of the various houses of worship will pray for our leaders, our nation, and peace in general. Participants are encouraged to bring family and friends for what is anticipated to be an inspiring time of community fellowship.

The evening ceremony is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided, and all ages are encouraged to attend.
