Washington, DC – Tomorrow, May 7, 2009 marks the annual observance of the National Day of Prayer.  Created in 1952 by a joint resolution of Congress, the National Day of Prayer invites people of all faiths to pray for the United States of America.  Below is Congressman Lucas’ statement on the celebration.

“Setting aside one day a year to acknowledge the importance of prayer is a wonderful way to celebrate our faith.  I applaud the National Day of Prayer’s task force and their hard work in this worthy endeavor.  In Oklahoma, we know that prayer plays a pivotal role in our every day lives and strive to celebrate each and every day as a national day of prayer.  As I continue to ensure that Oklahoma’s values are represented in Congress, I am proud to know that our faith remains the backbone of our great state.”
