Courthouse Rally Planned For National Day Of Prayer

A rally will be held at the Greene County Courthouse at noon on Thursday, in observance of the National Day of Prayer.

The Greeneville/Greene County Ministerial Association is coordinating this year's rally, according to a news release from the Rev. Dr. Dan Donaldson.

The public is invited to attend this gathering on a day set aside by Congress and the president for many years as a day for Americans who wish to do so to pray for the nation.

The national day of prayer is an annual observance on the first Thursday in May that is declared by a proclamation of Congress signed by the president.

All participation is voluntary, and Americans who wish to take part in some way, regardless of what faith they follow, are encouraged to take part as they feel comfortable doing so.

Independently, a volunteer committee including representatives of various Christian groups has for many years worked to encourage Christian participation throughout the country in the National Day of Prayer.

The theme adopted by that group for the 2013 National Day of Prayer is "Pray for America" and is based on Matthew 12:21. The verse states that, "In His name, the nations will put their hope."

Greeneville Mayor W.T. Daniels and Greene County Mayor Alan Broyles will present a joint resolution designating Thursday, May 2, 2013, as the National Day of Prayer in Greeneville and Greene County.

The Greeneville/Greene County Ministerial Association is asking those churches with bells to ring them at noon, Thursday, as an audible reminder to the community to pause for a time of prayer.

The Continental Congress first called for a National Day of Prayer in 1775, according to aa news release from the committee.

This call was reiterated by Abraham Lincoln in 1863 and, in 1952, President Harry S. Truman signed a joint resolution of Congress calling for a National Day of Prayer.

Ronald Reagan signed a joint resolution amending the 1952 resolution designating the first Thursday in May as the National Day of Prayer.

This year will mark the 62nd annual observance of the National Day of Prayer.
