Unity across the nation and among churches spanning all denominations, generations, races and cultures is the overarching plea of the 2018 National Day of Prayer May 3.

Mobilizing people across the nation in public prayer events May 3 — capped by a nationally televised and livestreamed prayer service at 7:30 p.m. (Eastern Time) at the U.S. Capitol Building — is the day’s goal, event president Ronnie Floyd said at
