66th annual National Day of Prayer observed

The West LaFollette Community Center will be the site of the Campbell County National Day of Prayer event.

On the national level, it is estimated that more than 2 million people attended more than 30,000 gatherings, according to the National Day of Prayer's website. "It's to focus on giving God glory".

The events coincide with the National Day of Prayer, created by a 1952 joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. The theme is "For Your Great Name's Sake". "Prayer can do what we can't do, and prayer can go where we can't go, and prayer can heal what we can't heal", Fletcher told the crowd of about 35. He related the matter to scripture in Daniel 9:19.

Sumter Mayor's Prayer Breakfast - Marcus Lattimore will be the key speaker. It emphasized a need for our nation to cry out to God, who is considered by followers as sovereign over all governments and authorities.

"This community and this nation has challenges that we have never seen before".

We were encouraged Thursday and hopeful that respect and integrity might soon return to the political arena. "And he repented for his nation".

This year, Truett Holt will lead the prayer. The fellowship is a group of Quincy area pastors that meets twice a month to pray together and share a meal. "So, I get up every morning and title the first part of my day to the Lord and I believe he blesses the rest". "It varies from year to year, but the invitation is for everybody to come". He said it's time for church leaders to be bold and reclaim that foundation.

"I think it's wonderful", she said. "The louder we pray, the louder we'll be heard". After Byars' introduction and the colors were presented by Blade Steele, David Coleman, Gavin Lett and Dakota Ivy with the WHS NJROTC program, Wini Frances led the singing of the national anthem, while Beth Franklin, a member of the Day of Prayer committee, led the Pledge of Allegiance. He urged all citizens to observe the day.

Rev. Tom Mims, who directs the Gulf Coast Rescue Mission, prayed for the church. Together, everyone prayed for different sections of America to do their best for the greater good. Hymns were also sung together. Those written prayers were then posted around the auditorium for people to read during the service and join them in those prayers.

The National Day of Prayer is celebrated by Americans of many religions, Protestants and Catholics, as well as Muslims, Sikhs, Hindus, and Jews.

Roberts prayed for the nation, with hope that those elected would work for the nation, and for the people.

"Our community has been really blessed", White said. He is pictured with Joshua Byrd.

But there will be other prayer observances across the region as well.
