A Family Prays

Part of’s coverage of the National Day of Prayer Logo

National Day of Prayer is a day in which people of faith dedicate time to go to rallies that promote time to pray to God in their own fashion. People will come together in cities all over the country on May 1, 2014 to pray.  As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we also want to make sure that we support this day, for prayer is important and crucial to our faith and reliance on Heavenly Father. Here are some videos that help us see the significance of prayer in our daily lives.
