“We encourage everyone, wherever they are at noon Thursday, May 1st to pray for our country,” said event supporter Sharon Van Baale.

“If you can make one of these events, please join us! There are seven centers of prayer that the National Day of Prayer Task Force suggests that we focus on — government, church, military, family, education, media and businesses. Please pray for our country, now and always.”

Preceding the National Day of Prayer events is a “Pray Where You Are” 24-hour prayer vigil to pray for our county.
