Summary
Each year since 1957, the president has signed a proclamation encouraging all Americans to pray on this day.

The National Day of Prayer is an annual day of observance on the first Thursday of May designated by the U.S. Congress, when people are asked to turn to God in prayer and meditation.

On April 17, 1952, President Harry S. Truman signed a bill proclaiming a National Day of Prayer be declared by each president at a date of his choice. In 1988, the law was amended so the day would be on the first Thursday in May as it still continues.
