TEXT: Jeremiah 29:7: "Seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the Lord for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace."

In 1775, when America was in its birth throes, the Continental Congress called for a national day of "public humiliation, fasting, and prayer." In 1863, when our nation was in the midst of a conflict that threatened to leave it irreconcilably shattered, President Abraham Lincoln called the nation to a national day of prayer. In 1952, having recognized the significance of prayer throughout our nation's history, Congress established the National Day of Prayer as an annual event; the bill was signed into law by President Harry Truman. Since then, every president has signed a National Day of Prayer proclamation.
