Community Members Celebrate National Day Of Prayer

Community members gathered for prayer and worship Thursday on the annual National Day of Prayer at the Ashley Pond Pavilion. This year marked the 67th observance of the National Day of Prayer in the nation and the 52nd year that a Presidential Proclamation is signed for the National Day of Prayer. This year’s president of the National Day of Prayer is Ronnie Floyd, who also is president of the Southern Baptist Convention. The theme in 2018 is ‘Unity!’ and is based on Ephesians 4:3 that states, ‘Making every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace’. Photo by William McTeigue
