People from all walks of faith, across the country and in the Mid-South, participated in the National Day of Prayer Thursday.
Dozens came together at noon at Bartlett City Hall to pray for our nation, as well as state and local leaders. They also prayed for first responders and soldiers overseas.
Some said their prayers were more personal. They prayed for their families and sick loved ones.
“I prayed a lot about school and how God provides for me and my schooling because I’m in college and support myself and I prayed a lot about my friends,” says Clara Smith.
“I’m just glad that we had the opportunity to come together today from all different faiths to come and honor God and ask for His blessings on us,” says Bartlett Mayor Keith McDonald.
