National Day of Prayer

Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Today is the National Day of Prayer. This year marks 70 years since Reverend Billy Graham stood on the capitol steps in February 1952 and called for Congress and the president to establish a day of prayer. By April of that year, President Truman signed the legislation into law. Today, Americans across the country will gather to lift our country up in prayer.

Congressman Lamborn issued the following statement:

“Religious freedom continues to be one of the most important issues that affect the lives of everyday Americans. While each generation has faced its own set of conflicts and uncertainties, our Congress and our past presidents have understood the critical need for national prayer. At such a pivotal moment in our nation’s history, it remains important to hold true to Biblical principles in the face of cancel culture and mob mentality. Today and every day, we pray for wisdom and humility for our nation’s leaders, the protection of the unborn, the health challenges from the coronavirus pandemic, and the preservation of our God-given liberties that this country was founded upon.”
