Is prayer important to you? We would like to invite you to join us at our next meeting of the Fayette County National Day of Prayer (NDP) committee on Feb. 14.

At our Jan. 10 meeting, Nancy Boyer, chairperson, opened the meeting by welcoming everyone with Norman May leading us in prayer. Introductions of members followed. Those present included Nancy and Jim Boyer, Norman May, Paul Bain, Danny Merritt, Debbie McCutcheon, Rebecca Eggleton, Tanner Mick, Mary Estle, Sarah Landrum, Janey Miles, Molly Lotz, Mell Wickensimer, Jeriann Cory, Queenie Ables, and Pat Brinkman. The executive committee for NDP will be Nancy Boyer, Danny Merritt, Mary Estle, Sarah Landrum, and Norman May.

The 2017 National Day of Prayer theme is “For Your Great Name’s Sake! Hear Us …Forgive Us…Heal Us!” The scripture verse is “O Lord, Listen! O Lord, Forgive! O Lord, Hear and Act! For Your Sake, O My God…” Daniel 9:19.

The committee talked about their responsibility to organize the events on May 4 for the National Day of Prayer. Members were encouraged to have a prayer partner. The committee would like to encourage everyone to join them to pray for our country and the National Day of Prayer on Thursdays and fast, if possible.

The group decided they would tithe their offering to the Danny Lowe family this year. Danny helped with sound at NDP events in the county in past years.

Besides events on the National Day of Prayer, the committee will be at the Health Fair on April 29, have a Bible reading and a prayer walk on the Saturday before the National Day of Prayer. Members will be selling t-shirts for the National Day of Prayer. If you are interested in buying one please contact one of the members or Nancy Boyer at

The committee would like to invite other prayer warriors to join our meetings on Feb. 14, March 14, April 11 and 25 with a follow-up meeting May 9. Meetings will be held at Court House Manor in the Paddock Place at 7 p.m. Please join us in praying for our country.
