National Day of Prayer events across East Tennesseeā€

They did some crisis pregnancy counseling out of this building, but mainly they prayed. "Hopefully, we didn't have too much flooding and that's who we pray for" Morrison said. It was in 1952 that a joint resolution of Congress was signed by President Harry Truman to create this day.

That's why I'm pleased that the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 246 in Sun City Center is supporting National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 4. Praying for our nation needs to become a major movement in our nation daily.

Prayer focus included families, the nation, state and local governments, military, families, and communities. Violence, war, poverty and a decaying morality has left the country frail and in need of the strength, fellowship and unity provided by prayer.

Governor Ivey said prayer has been an important part of her life since she was a young girl in Wilcox County.

Many Christians gather in their respective churches each week to sing, pray and hear a message.

Persida Moran, James Bradford and Oliver McMahan will lead in prayers for God to unite His church.

Local events today for the National Day of Prayer included the annual prayer breakfast and observance at noon.

Then, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., a citywide prayer rally will be held at the East Avondale NET Reach Center, 455 S.E. Golf Park Blvd. "Heal us!" based on scripture from Daniel 9:19. The group came together to pray for the nation, Brown County, the City of Brownwood, and for local, state, and national leaders. "We know that it takes prayer to do that". "I've had many experiences in life that it was good that I've had that confidence that I could go to my Christ and have prayer and get through those turmoil's". "I believe that is essential if we expect God to hear us".

"I pray that we would strive to raise our families, both in community, one another and in our own nuclear families in your word", she said.

A poll released a year ago by Pew research found that 77 percent of Alabamians say religion is very important in their lives.

"During the service, I held this small rubber Earth in my hand and prayed that all the prayers for our country and world would be used to better our society", Thomas said.
