The 63rd annual National Day of Prayer will be held Thursday, in the First Baptist Church sanctuary at noon. This year's theme is "One Voice, United in Prayer" and is highlighted by this year's chosen scripture Romans 15:6: "So that with one mind and one voice you may glorify God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ." The Rev. Leland Crawford, pastor of First Baptist Church, invites the community to this special time to pray individually and corporately for our nation.
Shirley Dobson, chair of the National Day of Prayer Task Force since 1991, encourages communities and people of all faiths to pray for our nation. The National Day of Prayer Task Force's goal for this event is that participants "would move from a one day event to a lifetime endeavor" in praying for our nation.Subscribe to Read!
