Day of Prayer
proclamation by the U.S. president
DAY OF PRAYER, 2002
PROCLAMATION BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF
our Nationís founding, Americans have turned to prayer for
inspiration, strength and guidance. In times of trial, we
ask God for wisdom, courage, direction and comfort. We offer
thanks for the countless blessings God has provided. And we
thank God for sanctifying every human life by creating each
of us in His image. As we observe this National Day of
Prayer, we call upon the Almighty to continue to bless
America and her people.
since September 11, millions of Americans have been led to
prayer. They have prayed for comfort in a time of grief, for
understanding in a time of anger and for protection in a
time of uncertainty. We have all seen Godís great
faithfulness to our country. Americaís enemies sought to
weaken and destroy us through acts of terror. None of us
would ever wish on anyone what happened on September 11th.
Yet tragedy and sorrow none of us would choose have brought
forth wisdom, courage and generosity. In the face of
terrorist attacks, prayer provided Americans with hope and
strength for the journey ahead.
has blessed our Nation beyond measure. We give thanks for
our families and loved ones, for the abundance of our land
and the fruits of labor, for our inalienable rights and
liberties and for a great Nation that leads the world in
efforts to preserve those rights and liberties. We give
thanks for all those across the world who have joined with
America in the fight against terrorism. We give thanks for
the men and women of our military, who are fighting to
defend our Nation and the future of civilization.
continue to remember those who are suffering and face
hardships. We pray for peace throughout the world.
this National Day of Prayer, I encourage Americans to
remember the words of St. Paul: "Do not be anxious
about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition,
with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." The
Congress, by Public Law 100-307, as amended, has called on
our citizens to reaffirm the role of prayer in our society
and to honor the religious diversity our freedom permits by
recognizing annually a "National Day of Prayer."
THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States
of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the
Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby
proclaim May 2, 2002, as a National Day of Prayer. I ask
Americans to pray for Godís protection, to express
gratitude for our blessings and to seek moral and spiritual
renewal. I urge all our citizens to join in observing this
day with appropriate programs, ceremonies and activities.
WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this
twenty-sixth day of April, in the year of our Lord two
thousand two, and of the Independence of the United States
of America the two hundred and twenty-sixth."
