The 62nd annual National Day of Prayer will begin at 8 a.m. May 2 in the fellowship hall of the Peabody United Methodist Church.
Local ministers have been invited to speak and pray at the event.
The nationwide theme this year is “Pray for America,” emphasizing the need for individuals to put their faith in their Creator, while joining in corporate and individual prayer.
To highlight that theme, the task force has chosen Matthew 12:21 for its key verse, “In His name the nations will put their hope.”
The public is invited to attend. Rolls and coffee will be served.
