Dayton Attends Prayer Observance At Minn. Capitol

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Gov. Mark Dayton and others are taking part in a prayer day outside the Minnesota Capitol on Thursday.

It’s part of National Day of Prayer observances taking place across the nation. Organizers are urging people to pray for the nation and its leaders, schools and churches.

Congress established National Prayer Day in 1952. It’s traditionally observed on the first Thursday in May.

Dayton last week proclaimed the day as Minnesota Day of Prayer, coordinating with a national proclamation from President Barack Obama.

The Minnesota Capitol event features pastors leading prayers. Similar events are scheduled across Minnesota in courthouses, city centers, parks and churches from Apple Valley to Warroad.

      Did he do it because he is a believer or because he wants the votes of the believers?
