The mission of the National Day of Prayer is to mobilize unified public prayer for America. This year’s theme is “Pray God’s Glory Across the Earth.”
Due to the coronavirus, this year’s event is being held online with organizers saying the need for prayer among God’s people is greater than ever.
Vice President Mike Pence is also taking part in today’s National Day of Prayer.

Pence will join an event this evening at 7 o’clock Eastern on pray.com.
Pence will be joined by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Republican U.S. Senators Marco Rubio of Florida and South Carolina’s Tim Scott, as well as numerous pastors.
Pompeo says it’s fitting that the nation gathers in prayer at this time as it needs prayer now more than ever.
