Many participants from Los Alamos and Española gathered to observe the 59th Annual National Day of Prayer May 6 at the First United Methodist Church of Los Alamos.  


Locally sponsored by several churches, the purpose of this observance was to provide prayerful support to communities and the nation. The hour-long program featured specific prayers for family, church, education, business/economy, government, the military, youth and the media.

Harry Chronis of White Rock Presbyterian, Chuck McCullough of White Rock Baptist, David Ring of First United Methodist, Colin Kelly of Trinity on the Hill Episcopal, Paul Cunningham of First Baptist, Henry Fernandez of Bryce Presbyterian, Mark Lincoln of Crossroads Bible and Jack Sullivan of Grace Vineyard Christian Fellowship Church offered these prayers.  

The celebration was led by Rev. Sullivan who presented a unifying prayer for World Peace in keeping with this year’s theme of  “for such a time as this we need to trust in God and know that He cares for us.”  

Gloria Streit established a prayerful mood with a prelude of sacred music and accompanied the celebrants in their enthusiastic rendition of the closing hymn, “God Bless America.”
