Prattville set for National Day of Prayer

PRATTVILLE, AL - The City of Prattville plans to observe the National Day of Prayer with a breakfast sponsored by Mayor Jim Byard, Jr. and the Prattville Christian Ministries' Fellowship Thursday.

The event is located at Doster Community Center on May 7, 2009. 

This year's program will feature guest speaker Bobby Humphrey, former running back for the University of Alabama, Mrs. Beth Moore, Honorary National Prayer Day Chairperson, along with various ministers of our community.  Prayer will be offered for government officials, the education system, businesses, churches, the media, military, and families.

President Harry S. Truman officially recognized the First National Day of Prayer in 1952, and President Ronald Reagan designated the first Thursday in May of each year as the official day for this observance.  "I urge our citizens to join me as we come together as Christians to pray for our City, our State, and our Nation," said Mayor Byard.

The serving line opens at 6:45 a.m., with the hour long program beginning at 7:00 a.m.  Tickets are $8.00 and are available at local churches, as well as the Mayor's office.
