The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9196 and its auxiliary will host an event to commemorate the National Day of Prayer on Thursday (May 5) beginning at 7:00 PM at the VFW Post Home in Rowena. Everyone is invited to participate in the service and to come together in prayer asking God's intervention for our nation.
The National Day of Prayer is an annual day of observance held on the first Thursday in May, designated by the United States Congress, when people are asked to turn to God in prayer and meditation. This is the 65th anniversary of the prayer service. The purpose of the event is to encourage community, church, government, and civic leaders to come together to pray for the direction and guidance for our nation. This year's theme is "Wake Up America."
