Is The National Day Of Prayer Excluding Religions?
Thursday is the National Day of Prayer, but is the day's evangelical Christian task force excluding other religions?By Katherine Biek | May 7, 2015
Thursday is the National Day of Prayer — a day where people of all faiths can come together and pray for the country. But is the event really embracing all religions?
A National Day of Prayer has been observed in the U.S. since 1952, when it was established by Congress. But the National Day of Prayer Task Force is an evangelical Christian organization, whose website says the day stands "...to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer ... and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America's leaders and its families."
