The theme for this year’s National Day of Prayer is “For Your Great Name’s Sake!” Daniel 9:19.
At the March 14 meeting of the Fayette County National Day of Prayer committee, Nancy Boyer welcomed everyone to the meeting. Janey Miles opened the meeting with prayer. Each of us took two prayer cards and laid our hands on them. Nancy and all of us prayed over the cards for the leaders in our towns of Jeffersonville and Bloomingburg.
Treasurer Sara Landrum gave her report.
Nancy asked the different people in charge of events for the National Day of Prayer on May 4 to report to the group.
Tanner Mick reported he will be working with students with prayer at the poles at both high schools at 7:15 a.m. He is also setting up a 24-hour prayer time for May 3-4 from 8 p.m. to 8 p.m. People can pray at Heritage Church, which will be open during those times or at home. Tanner will distribute posters to churches and the rest of the group will help with other places.
There will be an 11 a.m. service at the Commission on Aging. The community-wide prayer service will be at noon at the Court House Gazebo. In case of rain it will be at the Grace United Methodist Church. A 4 p.m. service will be held at the Veteran’s Memorial in Jeffersonville. The evening worship service will be held at Heritage Memorial Church at 7 p.m.
Jim Boyer talked about yard signs being distributed. Norman May will help Jim.
We need someone who can do sound for our event. We would pay $50.
Nancy Boyer is working with getting some books to give out and will order children’s books from the place we got them last year.
The group shared prayer requests and closed with prayer and the singing of “Bind Us Together, Lord.”
Join us for one of our next meetings. We will be meeting at Court House Manor on March 28 and April 11 at 7 p.m.
