Make the National Day of Prayer a priority this Thursday

LA leaders mark National Day of Prayer by praying for nation's future

We have prayed for our country, for our world and for ourselves. National Day of Prayer Coordinator Jane Long said, "When I think that just about every small town in the United States of America there's somebody somewhere at noon praying for our nation and the multiplication of that, I just can't imagine what God can do with it".

Then, one-by-one as they felt led, the participants stepped to the center and offered public prayers for unity in the government, the church, the military, families, education, media and business as part of the annual National Day of Prayer.

The walk will begin at 6 p.m. with a brief observance at First Christian Church, 117 W. Washington. Billed as the first annual countywide interfaith day of prayer, the event is sponsored by Holy & Whole Life Changing Ministries International and Loudoun Interfaith Bridges.

At this crucial time for the nation, organizers said the community can do nothing more important than pray. "I came years ago when it was down at the courthouse", the Bowling Green woman said when asked why she came.
