Looking for answers through prayer

-A A +A
By The Staff

In a world with a lot of complexities and conflicts, people are looking for guidance and answers to solve society’s issues.

Aid will be given May 7, which is National Day of Prayer. Gloria Streit will lead the service. The event begins at 11:30 a.m. at the First United Methodist Church.

A worship service will kick things off. From noon-1 p.m. the program will stop and go so attendees arrive and leave when they wish.

During the program, Gail Diedrich, event facilitator, said several national agencies including the government, military, media, businesses, education, church and family will receive prayers.

Music and a barbershop quartet singing the Lord’s Prayer will also be featured during the event.

Diedrich explained the first national call for fasting and prayer was in 1775. The Continental Congress issued the call. In 1863, President Lincoln declared National Day of Prayer and Fasting.

According to the National Day of Prayer website, this day was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Truman.

Its purpose, the website reports, is to communicate the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families.
