Many people will spend part of today talking to a higher power in honor of National Day of Prayer.

In 1952, Congress proclaimed a joint resolution for the day.

At the time President Harry S. Truman chose July 4 for that designation.

Many years later President Ronald Reagan moved the observance to the first Thursday in May.
