The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 through a joint resolution of the Congress, and it was signed into law by President Harry Truman.

“Prayer helps recalibrate our hearts. It is a way of being that puts God in focus; in the epicenter of our souls and redirects our desires,” said Kiwanis Club of Canandaigua Human and Spiritual Values Chair Jim Hough. “This day has become an important observance celebrated by our Kiwanis club and celebrated throughout Canandaigua and the Finger Lakes region. We are joining observances all across the United States.”

This year’s celebration will feature the testimony of Edson and Kelly Lee, a couple who will share their journey from the Amazon River where they served the native population with dental care. Edson is now finishing his degree from Eastman Dental School, and lives in Canandaigua with Kelly and their four children.
