Sunday, April 2

President Joe Biden issued a proclamation recognizing Sunday, April 2nd, as World Autism Awareness Day, 2023. “Today, we celebrate the achievements of neurodiverse people everywhere and champion the equal rights and dignity of all those living on the autism spectrum,” the president said, adding, “Here in the United States, more than 5.4 million adults are autistic, and 1 in every 44 children has been diagnosed with autism.”

“We owe it to our fellow Americans to address the disparities they face and to support autistic people with tools that facilitate clearer communication, increased productivity, and greater independence,” the president continued. “I call upon all Americans to learn more about autism to improve early diagnosis, to learn more about the experiences of autistic people from autistic people, and to build more welcoming and inclusive communities to support people with autism.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and administration officials to seek God’s guidance for the best way to meet the needs of the millions of Americans with autism.
  • For God to give wisdom to all federal leaders as they craft policies or allot federal funding towards caring for those who are living on the autism spectrum
  • For the president as prepares for the upcoming week.
