5 May 2017 - Franklin, Tenn - On Thursday, five-time GRAMMY® winning artist and songwriter Steven Curtis Chapman had the honor to perform at the 66th Annual National Day Of Prayer ceremony in Washington, D.C. Appearing before many faith leaders from around the U.S., Chapman performed two songs, "Great Is Thy Faithfulness" and "The Lord's Prayer." The ceremony was held in the Rose Garden at the White House. 

"I'm humbled and grateful every time I'm invited somewhere to sing about the love and grace of God," Chapman shares. "Sometimes it's in a prison or an orphanage, sometimes it's in Carnegie Hall, and sometimes it might even be in our nation's capital at The White House. It's always and only for His glory."

The National Day of Prayer began in 1952 and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Held annually on the first Thursday of May, the event invites people of all faiths to pray for our nation.
