Even people in a hurry could observe National Day of Prayer

Country Evangelical Covenant Church hosted a "Drive-Through" prayer service Thursday in the church parking lot in Campton Hills as part of the National Day of Prayer.
The church, at McDonald Road and Route 47, had members on hand from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. to accept prayers of concern or praise, and to pray immediately with the individual, if so desired.
Suburban houses of worship, local governments and people throughout the country celebrated the annual National Day of Prayer, which began in 1952 when President Harry Truman declared an annual National Day of Prayer after Congress declared the first Thursday in May to be a day for people "to turn to God in prayer and mediation."
The day was intended to be nondenominational.
