In 1982 the National Prayer Committee was formed to coordinate and implement a fixed annual day of prayer for the goal of organizing evangelical Christian prayer events with local, state, and federal government entities. In 1988, President Ronald Reagan signed a bill officially naming the first Thursday in May as a "National Day of Prayer".
