Throughout history, Americans have lifted up fervent prayers to God on behalf of our nation. From the first gatherings of our Founding Fathers through every year’s Presidential Proclamation of the National Day of Prayer, our nation rallies around common needs and themes to draw into prayer. This year, the National Day of Prayer 2023 theme is, “Pray Fervently in Righteousness and Avail Much,” coming from the promise in scripture found in James 5:16b NKJV that says, “the effective fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” This is a promise that our nation has witnessed over the decades of prayer since the National Day of Prayer became public law in 1952. Our nation has seen the hand and heart of God move, and therefore Americans come earnestly and expectantly to pray for the nation, gathering in love and unity throughout communities on May 4, 2023, to pray in faith and cele- brate the prayers that are prayed throughout the year.
