BANGOR - People across the nation, including here in Bangor, bowed their heads today for the 62nd annual Day of Prayer.
 
Dozens  gathered on the Bangor waterfront this morning to recognize the event. Several worship leaders from around Penobscot County led the service, asking those in attendance to pray for our country.
 
The Bangor City Council also delivered a proclamation for national prayer day to be recognized in the Queen City.
 
National Day of Prayer was first proclaimed by President Abraham Lincoln, and is now nationally observed every year on the first Thursday in May.
