Locals gather for day of prayer

U.S. Sen. James Lankford

Together may we know love and forgiveness, may we teach it to our children, may they teach it to their friends.

According to the National Day of Prayer website, the day was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman.

A nation and community facing challenges in government, business, churches, families, education and the military was the subject of prayer Thursday as Greencastle-Antrim added its petitions to a National Day of Prayer.

On National Day of Prayer, people gathered around the country, some in churches and some, like in Williston, outdoors, all with the same goal - prayer. Abraham Lincoln also had a proclamation for a day of "humiliation, fasting and prayer" in 1863.

The event's format will resemble that of past years, with an opening devotional, a reading from the Bible and then representatives from seven areas of the community each leading prayer individually for the group they represent.

Knox Day of Prayer will be from 7 p.m.to 8:30 p.m.at Word of Faith.

The Scriptures call on us to pray for our nation and the leaders in our nation.


With a prayer gathering at noon on the courthouse lawn, Neubert said the event has become increasingly popular with each passing year. Breakfast starts at 6:45 a.m.at Century II Exhibition Hall and cost is $25 per person in advance or at the door or $160 per table of eight. It is taken from Daniel 9:19. "Forgive us when we are selfish and hoard our blessings, and turn our back to those in need", Vogt wrote.

The event was organized by the If My People Pray Prayer Ministry, led by Rev. Marvin Green.

"We have such a divided nation", he said.

Government - prayer led by Lew Nazarewycz, Fairview Church, Letart.

2 times two or more people in a small group are said to be praying. He later mentioned the importance of people coming together to pray and solve issues, regardless of their church denomination or race.

For the 26th annual National Day of Prayer in Scott, people of all ages from around the community came to pray at the Scott Event Center.

She encouraged those who were unable to make it to the prayer sessions on this day to still take the time to come together with other believers in prayer.
