WASHINGTON D.C. –Today is the National Day of Prayer, and President Donald Trump signed an executive order creating a “faith-based” initiative during a ceremony in the Rose Garden at the White House.
Trump declared Mar 3, 2018 as the National Day of Prayer earlier this morning.
Here is a portion of the declaration he released:
“Prayer, by which we affirm our dependence on God, has long been fundamental to our pursuit of freedom, peace, unity, and prosperity. Prayer sustains us and brings us comfort, hope, peace, and strength. Therefore, we must cherish our spiritual foundation and uphold our legacy of faith.”
Trump signed an executive order creating a new faith-based initiative in an effort to continue the White House tradition that dates to President Truman of proclaiming the National Day of Prayer.
