National Day of Prayer May 5 with Community Observance 6PM in Broken Bow

BROKEN BOW–The Broken Bow Ministerial Association is hosting a National Day of Prayer event at 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 5, 2022.

The community is invited to the Broken Bow City Square Park on Thursday evening to pray for the nation. Attendees are asked to bring their own lawn chairs.

Pastor Cathy Saner said everyone will meet in the park to pray for the seven pillars of influence that are part of our country.

“We’ll be praying for families, and churches, and businesses, and education, and the military, our government (which includes our first responders and that type of thing–we think that’s very important), and arts, entertainment, and media,” Pastor Saner told KCNI/KBBN.

“And for our country to be blessed and protected and Godly leaders that will take our freedoms seriously. They need to be protected. I mean, they are under so much attack and we just want to be part of lifting them before the Lord our God,” she continued.

Since 1952, a National Day of Prayer has been observed in the United States which invites people of all faiths and beliefs to come together and pray for our nation. The annual observance is now held on the first Thursday of May each year.

Pastor Saner said there was an awesome turnout last year in the Broken Bow City Square and is hoping for good weather to meet this Thursday.
