Day of Prayer 1

Local residents gathered at Regan Park on Thursday during a prayer rally for the 62nd Annual Observance of National Day of Prayer. The theme for the event was “Pray For America.” A prayer breakfast also was held at First United Methodist Church that morning. The National Day of Prayer was established as an annual event in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman.
