Observances slated for National Day of Prayer

— Two observances of the 62nd Annual National Day of Prayer are scheduled today in Hunt County.

A contingency plan is in place for the event in Greenville, in case of inclement weather.

“Pray for America: Matthew 12:21” is the theme for this year’s event, with activities scheduled starting at noon on the north steps of the Hunt County Courthouse, 2500 Lee Street and at 6:30 p.m. at the Lone Oak Civic Center.

As today’s forecast was calling for a chance of rain, high winds and very cold temperatures, the event in Greenville may be moved indoors at Central Christian Church, 2611 Wesley Street.

The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman.

Local clergy and laity are expected to participate Thursday in prayers for local, state and federal governments, as well as for government leaders, youth, schools and the community as a whole.

This year’s event in Greenville is being sponsored by the Greenville Ministers Fellowship and the Greenville Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance.
