SALEM

The Salem Annual National Day of Prayer committee will have a program at noon Thursday at the Village Green at the intersection of State Street and Lincoln Avenue.

The National Day of Prayer is celebrating its 60th year. This will be the fifth observance in Salem.

The theme this year is “A Might Fortress is Our God” that comes from Psalm 91:2 that states, “I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in who I trust.”

The program will focus on Scripture, family, church, military, media, education, business and government.

At the 45-mimunte program, the Boy Scouts of America will raise the American flag. Mayor Jerry Wolford will present a proclamation.

The program will end with singing, “God Bless America.”

The National Day of Prayer tradition began before the founding of the United States by the Continental Congress’ proclamation in 1775 that set aside a day for prayer. In 1952, Congress established an annual day of prayer. In 1988, the law was amended, designating the National Day of Prayer as the first Thursday in May.
