Day of Prayer

National Day of Prayer commemoration was held Thursday at Franklin City Hall. The event was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. According to the National Day of Prayer Task Force, “It exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families.”
