Walker: National Day of Prayer ‘Moving’
For the City-Times
Governor Scott Walker on Thursday joined community and spiritual leaders at the Italian Community Center in Milwaukee for the Governor’s Prayer Breakfast, honoring the National Day of Prayer, which is held on the first Thursday of May each year. Governor Walker also designated today as a Day of Prayer throughout Wisconsin.
“This is a very moving event,” said Governor Walker. “It is so powerful to have people from different faiths united through prayer to call for peace, and to also support and remember the brave men and women around the world who have sacrificed so much for the freedoms we enjoy today.”
The National Day of Prayer was established by Congress in 1952. The purpose is to remember those serving and defending our country. It is an opportunity for members of all faiths and denominations to come together for a morning of prayer and reflection.
