“The National Day of Prayer reminds us that prayer has been an integral part of American life since our country’s inception,” said Governor DeSantis. “Casey and I are truly grateful for all the prayers made on our behalf over the years.”

“The Governor and I are extremely grateful for the prayers we have received, especially through my health battle,” said First Lady Casey DeSantis. “On this National Day of Prayer, we extend our most heartfelt prayers to the people of Florida and across America and thank God for our many blessings.”

Governor DeSantis has taken strong actions to defend and strengthen religious liberty in Florida. Most recently, Governor DeSantis signed HB 269 to provide law enforcement agencies with new enforcement mechanisms to punish perpetrators of antisemitic incidents and those who target religious communities. In 2021, Governor DeSantis signed HB 529, which institutes a daily moment of silence in Florida schools for students to pray or reflect. During the COVID pandemic, Governor DeSantis issued Executive Order 20-91, which recognizes the necessity of faith-based institutions and protects the rights of Floridians to attend religious services during a state of emergency.

The first National Day of Prayer was declared by the First Continental Congress in 1775 and was established as public law by the U.S. Congress in 1952. Since then, the National Day of Prayer has remained a treasured part of American heritage. 

  • Only treasured by some, missing by many, and needed by most.

    God bless!

  • Thanks for the meaningless platitudes, but none of your business Gov.


    Florida Man, with no experience running or working in a private business, attempts take over of states most successful, vital, and pivotal business. Roland DeSantis of Tallahassee, last month replaced the board with one weighted with religious fanatics and political operatives. Florida GOP voters reportedly said “What could go wrong?”

    • Negative Nellie Jazzman!!!
      You’re opinions are welcome, however I’ve never read a post from you that wasn’t bashing someone or something. You must sleep on the wrong side of the floor every night.

    • You’re already on your knees, may as well do something good while you’re there.

  • DeinSanetis is an unabashed Fascist. He needs to be part out of office…any office.

    • You should probably attend a course in language arts, I believe they begin grammatical usage and spelling in primary grades.

  • He thinks people are praying for him? What a jokester. I’m praying he goes away.

  • Our Governor is an honorable man. I’m thankful for him, and for his recognition that we need God’s blessing.

  • Gov. DeSantis is recognized as saving many lives with his appointment of Florida’s Surgeon General, Dr. Joseph Ladapo

    • He and DeSantis are killing people for politics. He lied about data in his “study”, which was trashed by UF and national medical experts and is busy convincing more idiots that the vaccines are dangerous. Here, try this:


      Two of my clients are docs who worked ICUs locally during the height of the Covid pandemic and they verified the high numbers of unvaxxed patients dying despite their best efforts, while their families slept in the waiting rooms. Don’t be a sucker.

    • He and the governor are despicable humans who are causing deaths with their lies. If the UF administration and Health Center leadership had any guts at all, they’d fire Ladipo now.

    • Just click your heels 3 times…
      Or wiggle your nose…
      Maybe say, “beam me up.”
      Take Jizzy with you. Forgot, in space no one can hear you scream.

      • If all I could come up with on a forum for discussion were content free personal insults, I’d be too embarrassed to post. GH probably got the participation trophies growing up and thinks any nonsense he puts out will get him another red star.

        • If I voted like you do I would be not only embarrassed but ashamed as well.

          Thanks for braying.
