Thursday marks the 60th annual National Day of Prayer, a day designated by Congress in 1952, where people are asked” to turn to God in prayer and meditation.”
Praise and Worship Leader for Sheridan's National Day of Prayer, Pastor Tim Charles says its all about intentional, concentrated, deliberate prayer for guidance, wisdom and protection for our country and its leaders.
Sheridan’s National Day of Prayer activities begin at 12 noon on the steps on the east side of the County Courthouse and will last one hour. Later in the evening, at 6:30 at the WYO Theater, there will be a time of community prayer.
Everyone is welcome and Charles tells us what the format will be like for the evening.
The National Day of Prayer service will end at 8:30, followed by a “Harp and Bowl” prayer time. Led by Dale Buckingham, he explains.
President Obama in his 2011 National Day of Prayer Proclamation said, “I invite all citizens of our Nation, as their own faith or conscience directs them, to join me in giving thanks for the many blessings we enjoy, and I ask all people of faith to join me in asking God for guidance, mercy, and protection for our Nation.”
