Communities come together for National Day of Prayer

It may have been a cold and windy day in Loganville and Monroe on Thursday, but people celebrating the 2016 National Day of Prayer did not let that deter them from coming together to pray for the nation.

Fourteen pastors from the community gathered on the front lawn of Loganville City Hall, as they do every year, to celebrate the National Day of Prayer. Members of the community who joined them were asked to join them in praying for the President and his cabinet, Congress and the Senate, the Military and the Supreme Court as well as local and state government. They also were asked to pray for first responders, schools and local ministries and pastors at home and abroad. Pastor Ronnie Kendall from First Baptist Church of Loganville asked attendees to pray for their own marriages and families and, in closing, Dr. Frank Ofosu Appiah of All Nations Church, asked for prayers for Revival in the churches in Loganville, the Nation and across the world.

In Monroe, a similar scene was taking place on the lawn of the Historic Walton County Courthouse in Monroe. The Monroe Area Ministerial Association arranged for pastors from the community to join in praying for the nation as well.
