    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  to include the first Thursday in May as the National Day of Prayer.
