The National Day of Prayer is a day of observance and is held each year on the first Thursday in May. It is a day where people of all faiths are asked to unify in prayer. The day was created by a joint resolution in Congress in 1952 and signed into law by President Harry Truman.

Sen. Bailey is encouraging members in both the Senate and House to participate in the National Day of Prayer. As a reminder, Sen. Bailey has handed out nearly 200 cookies and information on how to take part and participate in the day.
