City of Scott hosts National Day of Prayer

Rain fell on Thursday, the National Day of Prayer, but Cowetans were not deterred from gathering to pray.

On National Day of Prayer, people gathered around the country, some in churches and some, like in Williston, outdoors, all with the same goal - prayer.

Rev. Harry Pishcura of the New Life Assembly of God conducted the introduction and read the proclamation. "We've been coming for three or four years". O Lord, forgive! O Lord, hear and act!

"All around the country, there are millions of people doing the exact same thing we're doing now, which is to pray for our city, our state, our country and our leaders", said Pastor Rick Phelps as the ceremony commenced. Members of the community will also be gathering throughout the morning with live music and spontaneous prayer leading up to noon, when the entire nation prays as one, organizers said.

Quite honestly, I am surprised at how many spiritual leaders in churches, including pastors, do not participate in a National Day of Prayer experience.

"Prayer is very powerful".

After prayer, the crowd joined the choir in singing the chorus of God Bless America. But regularly, daily, both publicly and privately, we need to pray. You don't have to pray for hours at a time, though you can.

"I know what prayer can do", said Clarke.

The room provides centers for silent prayer of praise, intercession, confession, communion, for creative expression, for the work of missionaries and others.

Several citizens remained after the service and prayed in small groups.

The religious freedom executive order is seen as payback to evangelical Christians and religious conservatives for their support during the 2016 election. "We can't get the church to work together".

Still more prayers were offered for people across the world who are killed, imprisoned, and persecuted in other ways for practicing their faith.

Debby Plumstead Marshall said she finds comfort in prayer. "We're praying for someone with Leukemia right now". But as I heard recently, you can still pray in school. Daniel Sherar prayed for the military, Daviess County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Gary Allison led the prayer for law enforcement.
