National Day of Prayer Challenge Proceeds by ProQuest


Public Law 324, a Joint Resolution, was approved on April 17, 1952: "That the President shall set aside and proclaim a suitable day each year, other than a Sunday, as a National Day of Prayer, on which the people of the United States may turn to God in prayer and meditation in churches, in groups, and as individuals."[Shirley Dobson] testified that the annual theme and supporting scripture of the NDP Task Force proclamations comes from a Judo-Christian background. Dobson said she determines the theme by going before the Lord every year in prayer, and asking him what is on his heart for our nation, and through prayer God usually gives her "the perfect theme" for that year.The NDP Task Force holds a prayer service in the Caucus Room of the Cannon Office Building on Capitol Hill on the National Day of Prayer every year. God TV now webcasts the event. Representatives of all three branches of government (characterized by Mrs. Dobson as "the Executive branch, judicial and military" ) are invited.
