The first Thursday of May was designated as National Day of Prayer by President George Washington. Every year, religious organizations nationwide celebrate the day with prayer ceremonies.
This year, several churches in the Santa Clarita Valley are inviting residents to participate in “the president’s proclamation to pray for our nation.” Five local pastors will lead the prayers, and a local worship team will lead in songs of praise.
The prayer event is scheduled to be held 7 p.m. Thursday at the Grace Baptist Church Amphitheater, 22833 Copper Hill Drive.
For more information on the event, contact Pastor Stephen Jackson 661-305-5602.
