The Lancaster County Ministerial Association will sponsor a National Day of Prayer service at noon May 4 at the County Administration Building, 8311 Mary Ball Road, Lancaster.
Citizens of Lancaster County are invited to join with their neighbors and Americans everywhere in this nationwide observance. The 45 minute service will be led by local clergy, lay leaders and musician Mei-Li Beane. The prayer topics will range from those of personal and local significance to concerns of national and international importance, reported president, the Rev. Dr. Thomas Coye.
The National Day of Prayer in its present form was first established by Congress and President Truman in 1952. The aim was to establish an opportunity “on which the people of the United States may turn to God in prayer and meditation at churches, in groups and as individuals.”
“This is a wonderful moment for people of faith to affirm their bonds with one another as Americans and to seek from God the guidance we need,” said Rev. Coye.
