Government needs your votes, your taxes and your prayers. So, local officials, pastors and residents will gather at the Clark County Courthouse on Thursday to participate in the National Day of Prayer - a chance for communities to offer prayers for government leaders.
"All the local officials are welcome to join us," said Dan Brothers, youth minister for Grace Baptist Church and the event's organizer. "It's not just something we are doing here in Kentucky, it is something that is happening nationally."
The event will kick off at noon with a posting of the colors by the George Rogers Clark High School ROTC and a pledge to the flag. Several pastors from various local churches are scheduled to give brief talks on the importance of praying for government leaders, and the event will culminate with a group prayer and a closing song, "God Bless America." Organizers expect the event to last less than an hour.
