Anderson County willÂ participate in the National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 1, a press release said.
“The United States of America was founded on the importance of seeking Godâ€™s guidance in the face of both blessings and trials,” a press release said. “The National Day of Prayer provides Americans an opportunity to come together to pray for matters concerning present-day America and our nationâ€™s future.”
Anderson Countyâ€™s National Day of Prayer will be held from noon to 12:30 p.m. on Thursday on the front steps of the Anderson County Courthouse at 100 North Main St. in Clinton. The Courthouse will be open, but with limited staff during the ceremony, so citizens are asked to be patient if they have business to conduct.
“We are inviting all Anderson County citizens to attend the local ceremony,” a press release from the Anderson County Mayor’s Office said. “Prayers will be offered for county officials, our national government, education, the U.S. military, community relationships, and church and family. Local pastors will lead those assembled in prayer. County employees will participate, and students from local schools will also participate.”
