70th Annual National Day of Prayer

The 70th Annual National Day of Prayer was held on Thursday, May 5, 2022, with a theme of Exalt the Lord who has established us. 

Those in attendance were welcomed by Becky Hankins to begin the National Day of Prayer.  There were many unison scripture readings, songs, and prayers during this event.  The key verse/unison scripture reading that began this event was “So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”

The songs included “Sweet Hour of Prayer,” “Same God,” and “Way Maker” led by Franklin Wiggins, Campus Pastor Crossland Community Church Morgantown and Shera Lindsey.  Shera Lindsey also sang the benediction song “On My Knees.”

The prayers throughout this event were for the church, family, government, schools, media, military, and businesses.  Raleigh Blancett – Pastor of Mt. Olivet, Kathy and Garry Dean McKee, Judge Executive Tim Flener, Robert Tuck – Superintendent of Butler County Schools, Diane Dyer of WLBQ and Beech Tree News, Gary Smrtic – Owner and Operator of Factory Ten, and Kendall Embry – Owner of Embry & Watts led the prayers for this year’s event.
