Red Oak Community National Day of Prayer set for Thursday

The theme for this year is "Pray for America - Unity". Created in 1952 by a joint resolution of Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman, the National Day of Prayer has inspired countless events of spiritual meditation and hope in cities across the country.

Both local events are free and open to the public, said event coordinator Donna Knowles. The ceremony will begin at Noon.

The breakfast is traditionally sponsored by local churches; First Baptist Church of Palestine will host this year.

In 1982 the National Prayer Committee was formed to coordinate and implement a fixed annual day of prayer for the goal of organizing evangelical Christian prayer events with local, state, and federal government entities. "Where our country is at right now, prayer is something that we do all agree on", Phelps said.

Citizens will pray for many different components of the community, including families, schools, businesses, government leaders, those in the military and unity among residents.

Pastor Ash Welch said there will be people available to talk with or to answer questions if visitors have questions about where or how to pray.

In addition to the scheduled events, signs will be posted on the walking paths in Pomeroy, Middleport, and Racine for the week, asking those walking to pray for those mentioned on the signs as they walk.

Ask God to call His people to prayer in every town, city, and county in America on May 3.

Thursday's hour-long program will include special music and remarks from community leaders and representatives of several organizations.

This year, there will be an evening celebration at First United Methodist Church in Nolanville, and another at the Bell County Expo Center in Belton. Callers may leave a message.
