Local National Day of Prayer event set for noon Thursday

Posted: Friday, April 25, 2003

As our country is fully at war, God's people are turning to him to seek protection and peace. In 1863 the United States Congress established the National Day of Prayer as an annual event by a joint resolution, signed into law by President Truman. The law was amended in 1988 and signed by President Reagan, designating the National Day of Prayer as the first Thursday in May.

I would like to invite people to participate in a National Day of Prayer event scheduled for noon on Thursday at 145 Main St., Kenai, in front of the Legislative Affairs building.

This year's theme is "Righteousness exalts a nation but sin disgraces all people." I hope that those who are working, might be able to join during their lunch break for this event.

Prayer guides with the names of our national, state and local leaders as well as pre-addressed postcards to them, to let them know they were prayed for, will be distributed. If you are not able to attend this event but would like to receive a prayer guide, you may contact the Love INC office.

I hope many people will be able to celebrate our freedom, fought for even as I write, and join together in prayer on Thursday.

In freedom, Janine Espy, Executive director Love INC
