Day of Prayer event at Kehler Park

SHAMOKIN - Local Christians will observe the National Day of Prayer at noon Thursday at Claude Kehler Park. Several churches will participate in this unique annual time of prayer for our nation, state, communities, churches, schools and families. The community is encouraged to attend.

The theme for 2014 is "One Voice, United in Prayer," emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to place their faith in the unfailing character of their Creator, who is sovereign over all governments, authorities, and men. The theme verse is Romans 15:6, "So that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ."

The mission of the National Day of Prayer Task Force is to mobilize prayer in America and to encourage personal repentance and righteousness in the culture.
