Faith Investor Services was honored to gather in prayer this morning with many financial professionals to celebrate the National Day of Prayer. As investment professionals, we all do important work for our clients and contribute to the economic vitality of the nation. In 1952, Congress first established the National Day of Prayer and was signed into law by President Harry Truman. On May 5, 1988, President Reagan signed an amendment which established the first Thursday in May to officially recognize this important day.
With all the challenges we face as a country, let us continue to ground ourselves in prayer and give honor and thanks to God.
