National Day of Prayer Next Week

WASHINGTON — National Day of Prayer, an event held annually since 1952, will take place Thursday on the steps of the Daviess County courthouse.

Music by the Antioch Praise Team will begin at noon with the general public welcome, introduction, reading of the proclamation, Pledge of Allegiance and prayers beginning at 12:15 p.m. The event will conclude with the singing of “God Bless America” by the Praise   Team at 12:45 p.m.

The theme for the event this year is “Pray for America” and Matthew 12:21, “In His name the nations will put their hope” has been chosen as the scripture. 

“This event allows us to take a break from everything to pray for our nation,” said Rev. George Qualley, of the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church.

“We will pray our government, churches, military, family, education, media, businesses, civil authorities and for those incarcerated and bonded by addiction.”

Eric Bassler will be reading the proclamation signed by Mayor Joe Wellman. Leading the prayers will be Judge Greg Smith (prayer for government), Rev. Pam Gregory (prayer for church), Chaplain Daniel Sherar (prayer for military), Cornerstone Christian School (prayer for family), Father Gordon Mann (prayer for education), Dave Foster (prayer for media), Alice Fitzgerald (prayer for business), Chief of Police Mike Healy (prayer for civil authorities) and Rev. Pete Aldrich (prayer for those incarcerated and those in bondage to addiction.)

Each year the President issues a proclamation declaring the first Thursday in May National Day of Prayer. Nationally, more than 35,000 prayer gatherings will be conducted Thursday by about 40,000 volunteers. Locally, the event is organized by the group Citizens for Family Values.
