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.
