(Submitted) The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all denominations to pray for our nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Since its inception, this day has continually united Americans from all socio-economic, political and ethnic backgrounds in prayer while also encouraging personal repentance and righteousness in the culture.
This is the 4th year that this event has been held in Campbell County. This year the event will be held in the gymnasium of the City of LaFollette West End Community Center, also known as the Old West LaFollette Elementary School, which is located at 300 W. Beech Street. The date is, Thursday, May 4th, 2017 at 7:00 PM. Senator Ken Yager will be the key note speaker. Local pastors, various public officials, veterans, school personnel and private citizens will be praying for our local area and our nation. The Community Choir will also be ministering in song. We would like for everyone to come out and pray. We look forward to seeing you at this years event.
