On May 5, the Plainfield Ministerial Association will be celebrating the 64th annual National Day of Prayer with a free event open to the public.
An outdoor service will be held on the southwest corner of Lockport Street and Route 59 will begin at 11:30 a.m. and run until 12:15 p.m. The service will begin with worship and lead into the American Legion color guard presentation of the flag. Pastors, Reverends and Deacons from local churches will be on hand to lead prayers.
In addition to the service, the area will be open from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. for anyone who would like to stop by either to join in prayer or to be prayed for.
“It is important that people realize how much they are loved and in this chaotic world, people often feel forgotten or left behind,” Pastor Ken Schultz of Crosswinds Church said. “We want to pray with those in need and offer an opportunity to join with other church leaders to pray for Plainfield and out nation.”
The National Day of Prayer, is celebrated the first Thursday of every May as a way to come together as a nation to worship God and offer prayers for the nation. This year’s theme is “Wake Up America,” emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to return to the God of Fathers in reverence for His Holy Name.
