    This is the month we come together as a group of believers and stand shoulder to shoulder in unity to pray.
    On April 17, 1952, President Harry Truman signed a bill proclaiming the National Day of Prayer into law in the United States. President Reagan amended the law in 1988, designating the first Thursday of May each year as the National Day of Prayer.

  • You know the commercial about the man who, all throughout his life, thought he was of German descent and then once he had his ancestry DNA tested he learned he’s really Scottish and Irish?
    I have a friend who had her DNA tested last year and learned that she’s not so Irish as she had always thought. Turns out she’s mostly mumbo-jumbo European with very little Irish ancestry. (Her dark hair and olive complexion should’ve been a telltale clue.)
