Bro. Taylor led the prayers for the schools; Bro. Ward led prayer for churches and ministries; Bro. Wallace prayed for state government; Bro. Hocker prayed for local government; Bro.

"We're just so privileged to be able to do this," said Bro. McDaniel, chaplain at Morgantown Care and Rehab. "We really appreciate all of the local officials who were able to come out and take part this morning."
"We really appreciate Morgantown Care and Rehab sponsoring the National Day of Prayer because we believe that prayer is the answer to the ailments of our country," said Judge Fields.
National Day of Prayer was first signed into law by President Harry Truman in 1952. President Dwight D. Eisenhower added the words "Under God" to the Pledge of Allegiance. In 1988, President Ronald Regan designated the first Thursday in May as the official day of observance of National Day of Prayer.
