U.S Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08) issued the following statement in observation of the National Day of Prayer.
"Today, millions of Americans will come together for the 62nd Annual National Day of Prayer. Our nation faces many challenges, and today we unite to give thanks for our blessings and freedoms, and also to ask for guidance, protection, and peace," said Hudson. "The theme for this year's Day of Prayer is "Pray for America', so let us pray for our men and women who serve, and for their families who sacrifice for the safety of our country; let us pray for the Americans affected by the senseless tragedies that have fallen upon our nation; and let us pray for the future of our free and prosperous nation. Through our faith and fellowship, America will remain a defender of liberty and beacon of hope for all."
