POMEROY — The kickoff to the local National Day of Prayer observance Sunday afternoon attracted more than 150 Christians from across the county who circled the Meigs County Courthouse and prayed for our county and its leaders.
Brenda Barnhart, organizer of the observance, led in the group prayers and the singing of familiar hymns which followed. Immediately following Bible reading started from the stage area and continued until 10 p.m. It was continued yesterday and is taking place today and tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
As in the past the walking path is marked with signs about community issues and people in need of prayer for this week as the observance of Day of Prayer continues.
On Thursday the traditional observance of the Day of Prayer will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on the Courthouse steps. There will be special music, comments from Christians, and a speaker.
On Friday a family day observance will be held from 6 to 10 p.m. on the Pomeroy parking lot to wrap up the Day of Prayer observance. Bounce houses will be on site, games will be conducted, and there will music, all at no cost to those attending. In the event of rain the activities will be moved to Saturday.
