Prayer in the Park to be held today
SALYERSVILLE - After the success of an event held on National Day of Prayer in May, a "Prayer in the Park" is scheduled for today.
Mandy Adair, the event coordinator, said, "The National Day of Prayer event on May 5 was a great success. Believers from many different denominations laid their differences aside and united in prayer for our nation, leaders, and Magoffin county.
There was a real sense of unity as pastors and leaders shared their common desire to see a great spiritual awakening in our nation and community."
During the event held in May, Adair said she was approached by pastors and citizens who expressed that they would like to see more prayer events in the community where they could gather with their "brothers and sisters of different churches to seek God."
So she started planning it. The upcoming "Prayer in the Park" will be held August 4 at Ramey Memorial Park, from 6 to 8 p.m. This will be a free event and is not affiliated with any specific denominations or organizations. Adair emphasized that this event will be open to the public, rain or shine, inviting any interested citizens, pastors and church members who want to join their "fellow Christians in seeking God on behalf of the nation and community."
" I, like many others, believe this is a critical time in American history." Adair said. "It's time for the Church to get past denominational labels and division and come together to pray for the nation we love. As a Christian, I believe there is something more important than my vote, and that's my prayer. The prayers of the Church can change the course of a nation. They can strengthen our leaders. They can bring healing to the division and pain we see all around. Prayer is the only means by which we will see the spiritual awakening our nation so desperately needs. This event isn't about a person or denomination. It's about a unified Church seeking a Living God who is the only hope for America."
For the August 4 prayer event, Adair said they will also emphasize praying for the upcoming school year, as well as the safety of students and teachers.
All pastors and congregations are encouraged to attend the August 4 "Prayer in the Park."
