The Biden Administration did not observe the National Day of Prayer.
The claim took off on social media following May 6, 2021, which was this year’s National Day of Prayer.
Misbar’s investigation found that according to its official website, 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 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman.” Its historical summary is as follows:
While there was no in-person service at the U.S. Capitol this year, that is because the Capitol remains closed due to coronavirus concerns. President Joe Biden issued a Proclamation on National Day of Prayer, in which he asked citizens to “remember and celebrate the role that the healing balm of prayer can play in our lives and in the life of our Nation.”
Further, he officially proclaimed May 6, 2021 as a National Day of Prayer, and gave a talk at Pray.com about the power of prayer.
