NM churches to host National Day of Prayer

By The Paper staff

NORTH MANCHESTER -- A National Day of Prayer service will be Thursday, May 3, from 12:10 to 12:50 p.m. at the North Manchester Police & Fire Department building on the front lawn.

The public is invited to join with local pastors, congregations and communities as they pray.

The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for our nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman.

Since its inception, this day has continually united Americans from all socio-economic, political, and ethnic backgrounds in prayer while also encouraging personal repentance and righteousness in the culture.
