National Day of Prayer


Residents of Long Beach are invited to gather at the Town Green tomorrow, Thursday, May 5, from 12:15 - 12:45 p.m. for the National Day of Prayer.


According to the National Day of Prayer's website, "the National Day of Prayer tradition predates the founding of the United States of America, evidenced by the Continental Congress’ proclamation in 1775 setting aside a day of prayer. In 1952, Congress established an annual day of prayer and, in 1988, that law was amended, designating the National Day of Prayer as the first Thursday in May."
