The observance is now held the first Thursday each May when all Americans are encouraged to exercise their religious freedom by gathering publicly to worship and pray for our land.

The Washington, D.C. observance will be live-streamed on the organization's website, www.nationaldayofprayer.org, starting at 5:30 p.m. mountain time. Heal Us, ” which is inspired by Daniel 9:19. We look for hope and faith with occasions such as these where we bring people together and ask for God's guidance and direction and his help.

People should be praying that "whatever happens to us happens for the sake of his great name", Simpson said.

Bill Houck, organizer of the local event and pastor of NorthStar Baptist Church, said after the service that the event is needed in the community.

The government center is located at 1 Harrison St.

Some will disagree with the need for such events, but we would contend there is nothing more important than prayer.
