On April 17, 1952, a bill initiated by Conrad Hilton of Hilton Hotels and Senator Frank Carlson of Kansas was passed, stating that the President of the United States was to set aside an appropriate day each year, other than Sunday, as a National Day of Prayer. Every president since 1952 has signed a National Day of Prayer proclamation.

"Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." - I Thessalonians 5:16-18
