About us

The mission of the National Day of Prayer Task Force is to mobilize prayer in America and to encourage personal repentance and righteousness in the culture.


The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. In 1988, President Reagan set the first Thursday of May and the National Day of Prayer.

The Arizona National Day of Prayer (AZNDP) is a privately funded organization whose purpose is to encourage prayer. AZNDP exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for individuals, families and leaders.

AZNDP, in conjunction with the National Day of Prayer Task Force (NDPTF), promotes and conducts a Judeo Christian expression of prayer for our nation, based on our understanding that this country was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the Bible.
