I assumed when I wrote the below post that most Christians would have known about the National Day of Prayer. I shouldn't assume such things. My bad.
I think it's sad that most people have heard of such days as Grandparent's Day and Secretary's Day and we celebrate days like National Nurses Day or National Clergy Recognition Day, but a day as important as the National Day of Prayer is not well known or publicized. Maybe it's because it's a day designated by the U.S. Congress and not Hallmark.
My link of the day on the below post was for the site of the National Day of Prayer Task Force. It's the official site for this day and gives you a lot of information on what the day is and how you can participate - even a single pray-er sitting in your own home. I also found the background information on Wikipedia interesting.
So, now I'd like to know if you had heard of the National Day of Prayer or knew what is was. And if you had/have any plans to participate in any way.
