Community invited to participate in prayer events

National Day of Prayer May 7

(ROCKWALL COUNTY, TX – April 9, 2015) The City of Rockwall will host a Mayors’ Prayer Breakfast at 7:30 a.m. Thursday, May 7 at The Center in Downtown Rockwall, 108 E. Washington St., in conjunction with the annual National Day of Prayer. Mayors from cities throughout RockwallCountywill be in attendance.

There will be a second opportunity for the community to come together in prayer on May 7. A Community Noontime Prayer event will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the grounds of Rockwall City Hall, 385 S. Goliad St. Prayers will be offered by pastors and community leaders.

The first Continental Congress called for a National Day of Prayer in 1775 as did Abraham Lincoln in 1863. Congress established National Day of Prayer as an annual event by joint resolution signed by President Truman in 1952. The law was amended and signed by President Reagan to officially designate the first Thursday in May as the official date. The events are not political, but rather meant to encourage people county-wide to join their neighbors in a call to pray for our nation just as our national leaders will do in Washington D.C.
