The 60th National Day of Prayer will be observed on Thursday, May 5, 2011 in all states across America, as President Obama will lay wreath at Ground Zero in New York. This was disclosed by international news sites, May 4, 2011.

President Ronal Reagan has signed the National Day of Prayer into a law in 1988.  President Obama through the amended Public Law 100-307 signed by congress issued the proclamation of the observation of this day of prayer every first Thursday of May.

Obama will be visiting Ground Zero, previously the site of the World Trade Center, where hundreds of lives were lost in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack by the Al-Qaeda movement headed by Osama bin Laden. With the recent death of the most wanted man, the National Day of Prayer would be a perfect time for America to offer gratitude to God for justice rendered for the innocent victims of 9/11.

In San Diego, several prayer venues and times were set to accommodate people who would like to observe the National Day of Prayer. All across the US, prayer services are organized by pastors and church congregations with the collective purpose of “praying for America and its leaders” and for each individual’s personal prayers.
