May 4 -- National Day of Prayer

Ever since 1952, the first Thursday of May has been designated by the United States Congress as a National Day of Prayer. People are asked "to turn to God in prayer and meditation." Each year, the President signs a proclamation encouraging all Americans to pray on this day. The constitutionality of this event was challenged by the Freedom From Religion Foundation in 2011. Their case was unanimously dismissed by a federal appellate court.

In honor of this day, we offer a prayerful "crumb of comfort."  Dear Lord, may we, through Thy love reflected this day, bring some ray of sunshine into the lives of those about us. Make us obedient to the truth, and give us courage to do what we know is right -- thereby guided by Thy divine will.
