*The National Day of Prayer (U.S.C. 119) is an annual day of observance held on the first Thursday of May, designated by the United States Congress, when people are asked "to turn to God in prater and meditation". Each year, the president signs a proclamation, encouraging all Americans to pray on this day. The modern law formalizing its annual observance was enacted in 1952, although it has historical origins to a mandate by George Washington, the first president of the United States.*
The program will be moved to the Justice Center, third floor, JP 5 Courtroom if it is raining
