Ozarks Healthcare Chaplains to host National Day of Prayer Ceremony
The Ozarks Healthcare Chaplains will host a special ceremony on Thursday, May 5, at 4 p.m. inside the lobby of Ozarks Healthcare’s main entrance (Medical Office Building) located at 1100 Kentucky Ave. in recognition of the National Day of Prayer.
The ceremony will be filled with prayer and a message of comfort and thoughtfulness. The public is invited to attend.
The National Day of Prayer tradition predates the founding of the United States of America, evidenced by the Continental Congress’ proclamation in 1775 setting aside a day of prayer. The current National Day of Prayer was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. In 1988, President Ronald Reagan signed the amended law designating the first Thursday of May as a day of national prayer.
