President Reagan signed the law proclaiming the National Day of Prayer on May 5, 1988.

The President shall set aside and proclaim the First Thursday in May in each year, as a National Day of Prayer, on which the people of the United States may turn to God in prayer and meditation at churches, in groups, and as individuals.

Here in Prescott, the National Day of Prayer will be recognized and celebrated on Thursday, May 2nd at the Courthouse Plaza. St. Germaine's will offer a pre-ceremony of the Patriotic Rosary led by Anne Roper from 4pm-4:40pm. The main observance will begin at 5 PM.

Susan Cohen, the organizer of the local event, explained that Sanford Cohen, from KQNA and Arizona's Hometown Radio Group, will emcee the event. 

The welcome and opening remarks will be offered by Jana Kading, Yavapai County Republican Committee Chair.

This interdenominational event will then begin with Rabbi Elie Filler of the Prescott Chabod. Following the Rabbi will be Pastor Mark Johnson of American Lutheran Church, and then Father Gaspar Masilmani of Sacred Heart Catholic Church will speak. 

Patriotic songs will also be included as part of the celebration. 

 If... My people who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place.
2 Chronicles 7:14
