About General Prayer Day
The General Prayer Day is celebrated on forth Monday after Easter Sunday. It is also called as General Prayer Day, All Prayers Day, Great Day of Prayers or Common Prayer Day. The Great Prayer Day was put on the Statute book in 1686 and combined several lesser fast and prayer days. It is a Danish Holiday. It is a collection of minor Christian holy days consolidated into one day. Store Bededag is a statutory holiday in Denmark. They are eating hot buns before the evening of the Great Prayer Day. Today the church bells are ringing heralded. It is also celebrated in the Faroe Islands and Greenland as national holiday. Bells in every church announce the eve of Store Bededag. Some sources date this day of prayer more recently to the time of Christian VII, when his Prime Minister, Count Johann Friedrich von Struensee, decided upon one great day of prayer.
