National Day of Prayer: Community members gather to pray for community, country, world

Community members came together Thursday at the Biblical History Center to pray for our community, our country and more.

The event was held as part of the annual National Day of Prayer.

At 12:15 p.m., Emcee Kevin Dunn began the National Day of Prayer ceremony by going over the program.  Dunn was followed by several speakers, each with a different focus for their prayers. Anne Erinheim led a prayer for the military, County Manager Eric Mosley led a prayer for government, Raquel Neal led a prayer for businesses, Dr. Joy Baker led a prayer for healthcare, Brooke Outland Bryant led a prayer for families, Matt Napier led a prayer for education, Stewart Smith led a prayer for media, Cliff Meeks led a prayer for churches, and Dunn led a prayer for the nation.

After three members of the Troup High School JROTC marched onto the stage, everyone recited the pledge of allegiance.

The pledge was followed by a series of heartfelt prayers. In the middle of them, singer and guitar player Kenyetta Cotton sang a song about having to choose between God and worldliness. When she finished, the crowd burst into enthusiastic applause. After the rest of the prayers, Cotton led the crowd in singing “God Bless America.”

“This is another way to bring the community together and be on one accord,” Dunn said.
