The Program on Biblical Law and Christian Legal Studies invites you to this year’s observance of the National Day of Prayer, Thursday, May 2nd, in their office, 009 Austin Hall. Doors open at 7:30 am. Bagels, fruit, coffee and juice will be provided. We will begin promptly at 8 am. Come when you can, leave when you must.
The National Day of Prayer was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. In 1988, the law was unanimously amended by both the House and the Senate and signed into law by President Ronald Reagan on Thursday, May 5, 1988, designating the first Thursday of May as a day of national prayer. Every president since 1952 has signed a National Day of Prayer proclamation.
The theme for this year’s National Day of Prayer is Love One Another. The theme comes from the words of Jesus in John 13:34, “Love one another. Just as I have loved you.” We will focus on the 7 Centers of Influence in America: Government, Military, Media Arts, Business, Education, Church, and Family.
You are welcome to invite others that may be interested. For more information or questions, please e-mail PBLCLS@law.harvard.edu.
