National Day of Prayer events in South Cobb
The National Day of Prayer is quickly approaching and many in South Cobb are making plans for the annual day of observance where citizens come together in a mobilized unified public prayer for America.
Held each year on the first Thursday of May, the event was established in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman, where people are asked “to turn to God in prayer and meditation”
Each year, the President is required by law to sign a proclamation encouraging all Americans to pray on this day.
Events in Cobb for the Annual National Day of Prayer are scheduled at varying times on May 4 and include:
- In Mableton at the First Baptist Church of Mableton, 5385 Church St., Mableton from noon to 1 p.m. For more information, contact Jeff Davis at email@example.com.
