National Day of Prayer yard signs and posters will soon be appearing all over Fayette County.
The signs will remind people that Thursday, May 5 is this year’s National Day of Prayer. This year’s theme is “Wake Up America,” based on Isaiah 58:1. Kick off events on April 30 will include a “Bible Reading Marathon” at the courthouse gazebo at 1 p.m., followed by a “Prayer Walk/Drive” at 3.
On May 5, the Commission on Aging will have a patriotic program before lunch. The main event for May 5 is the noon service at the courthouse gazebo (Grace United Methodist Church if there is rain).
A service at the Jeffersonville Veteran’s Memorial will begin at 4 p.m. Grace United Methodist Church will host the evening service, which begins at 7 p.m. Everyone is invited and urged to attend the events to pray for our country.
