May 3—The National Day of Prayer

by on

For 56 years, the first Thursday in May has been designated in the U.S. as “The National Day of Prayer.” This year’s theme is “One Nation Under God,” based on Psalm 33:12: “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.”

President George W. Bush, in writing about today’s National Day of Prayer, stated in a proclamation that “we acknowledge God's grace and ask for His continued guidance in the life of our Nation. … At this important time in our history, we also pray for the brave members of our Armed Forces and their families. We pray for their safety, for the recovery of the wounded, and for the peace we all seek.”

While we encourage you to regularly visit our special prayer site,, to see a list of prayer requests related to the AiG ministry and the soon-to-open Creation Museum (May 28), today we specifically ask that you pray about the “culture war” that is raging in America—as society in general is increasingly turning its back on biblical truth—and for the U.S. military serving in hostile conditions in places like Iraq and Afghanistan.
