Despite bitter, cold winds Thursday at noon, three communities met for National Day of Prayer. Bryson residents met at the City Park, seeking shelter behind the log cabin. Perrin residents met at the fire department. Jacksboro participants met at the Main Street Bistro courtyard, but moved inside with 39 praying in groups. The mission of the National Day of Prayer Task Force is to mobilize prayer in America and to encourage personal repentance and righteousness in the culture. The Force uses Matthew 12:21, "In His Name, the nations will put their hope."
