America's National Day Of Prayer Should Include All Religions

America's National Day Of Prayer Should Include All Religions

I read with appreciation the front-page article ''New Revival in National Day of Prayer,'' May 4.

I strongly support the National Day of Prayer. However, I find its present form to be exclusive rather than inclusive of the diverse religious and spiritual backgrounds of the people of the United States. I am a Christian. But I find great benefit from joining in prayer with people from the Hindu, Muslim, and Buddhist religions.

If May 4 is truly to be a National Day of Prayer, it needs to include people of all religious faiths. Establishing a National Day of Prayer that is exclusive of many religions will not contribute to peace and harmony.
