SAVE THE DATE: The National Day of Prayer


Join together with others to pray for our nation, our city and for those in need right here in Wichita, at our National Day of Prayer event on May 6, 2021! We’re gathering here at the Mission, 2800 N. Hillside in Wichita, from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. 

Did you know our founding fathers called for this special day to pray? As early as 1775, people across the nation have gathered together to seek God’s guidance and grace. And in 1952, President Truman signed the National Day of Prayer into law as an annual event.
