Rhinelander observes National Day of Prayer

RHINELANDER - The Second Continental Congress called the first day of prayer in America in 1775. Its observance became law in 1952.

Rhinelander religious leaders observed the National Day of Prayer on Thursday near the Oneida County Courthouse. The first observance in Rhinelander was last year.

"One of the reasons National Day of Prayer is so great is that no one owns it," said Calvary Baptist Church Pastor Rod Ankrom. "The citizens own it. The churches own it. We all come together for the express purpose of praying to the one God that we all love and serve."
