National Day of Prayer

Observing Day of Prayer

"It's to focus on giving God glory".

Truman signed a bill proclaiming a National Day of Prayer must be declared by each following president at an appropriate date of his choice. The theme this year is "For Your Great Name's Sake!" "God we thank you that as we are in agreement with others in our nation, that you hear our prayers". Heal Us! Taken from Daniel 9:19, which says, "O Lord, Listen!"

"This community and this nation has challenges that we have never seen before".

"We may not partake in it, but we are its people", he said.

"Prayer is the answer to our problems", Green said. "There's a strength and a confidence to be gained when groups of people from all kinds of religions come together and pray for the country". I pray our generation will not die before seeing and experiencing it. "I'm glad to be a part of it this year and plan to do so for all the years to come".

"We've been stressing unity in Aiken for a long time, having one Aiken, the city and county coming together as one", Bush said.

What's Going On with Robert Plant's Website?
However, Robert Plant is now working on a new album, so it could simply be a reference to the fact it's almost finished. A cryptic message on Robert Plant's website has sparked online rumours that Led Zeppelin could reunite.

"It's something that's very close and personal to me", said Fitch. "The louder we pray, the louder we'll be heard". Mayor Billy Hewes read the official proclamation and then told the crowd about his recent experience parachuting into the park during Navy Week.

Two presidents were involved in creating one day each year as a day of community prayer for all Americans. He urged all citizens to observe the day.

"I think prayer changes things", said Marshall, associate pastor at Rock Presbyterian Church.

Several local ministers and laymen will pray for the President, Vice President, Congress, Supreme Court, Pentagon and military, White House and Congressional staffs, government agencies, state and local governments, schools, political factions, and churches in America. Hymns were also sung together.

Still more prayers were offered for people across the world who are killed, imprisoned, and persecuted in other ways for practicing their faith. I think the prayers were honest and reflected the heart of God. "We desperately need his help".

Roberts prayed for the nation, with hope that those elected would work for the nation, and for the people. He is pictured with Joshua Byrd. "Today we pray for our community and our nation".
