2012 Day of Prayer

The 61st Annual National Day of Prayer was observed Thursday, May 3, 2012. The theme, as established by the NDP task force was, “One Nation Under God,” based on Psalm 33:12 which states, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.”

Nationwide, it is estimated that more than 2 million people attended prayer gatherings at businesses, schools, churches, city halls, county courthouses and state capitols, along with a large observance at our nation’s capitol.

Here in the greater Killeen-Fort Hood area, more than 20 prayer events were held throughout the course of the day, including noontime observances at the City Halls in Killeen and Temple.
