Rev. Albertus C. Van Raalte wrote a sermon for presentation at the annual National Day of Prayer for Crops and Industry. The date of its presentation is not given. Dr. E. William Kennedy, in his study of the minutes of the Classis of Holland, said that the last mention of the annual day of prayer was 17 April 1867. The sermon may have been given that year or in an earlier year.
