County Chamber to Host National Day of Prayer Event


The Carroll County Chamber of Commerce is hosting the 2024 National Day of Prayer in Carroll County.

The event is at the Carroll County Airport on Thursday, May 2, at 8 a.m.

The 73rd annual National Day of Prayer theme and Scripture reference is “For you are my lamp, O Lord, and my God lightens my darkness. For by You I can run against a troop, and by my God I can leap over a wall. This God-His way is perfect; the word of the Lord proves true; He is a shield for all those who take refuge in Him.” — 2 Samuel 22:29-31.

Prayer has been an integral part of our lives for centuries, and the call to prayer is as relevant as ever. Ever since our nation’s founding, our leaders have called for days of prayer and thanksgiving. Originally signed into law by President Harry Truman in 1952, the National Day of Prayer in the United States is a day when people of all faiths are asked to pray for our nation.

The National Day of Prayer is a national observance in which anyone can participate, regardless of faith background. Over 40,000 prayer gatherings are held every year, which means that millions of people are taking part in this day of corporate and individual prayer as an expression of their spiritual lives. This day of devotion is an opportunity to exalt the Lord and ask for His blessings for our nation, state, county, and our neighbors.

The general public is invited to attend. The event is sponsored locally by the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce. For more information, please contact 731-986-4664.
