A National Day of Prayer celebration is planned for noon on May 5 on the courthouse steps in Taylorsville.
Many government leaders will participate in the program as well as several Spencer County pastors, according to a news release about the event.
Jon Rohr is Spencer County’s National Day of Prayer coordinator.
“Prayer is vital to the life and health of our nation, our state and our community,” Rohr said. “These difficult times remind us of our need for and dependence on God.”
This year’s theme, “A Mighty Fortress is our God,” is based on Psalm 91:2 – “I will say of the Lord, he is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
Congress established the National Day of Prayer in 1952. This observance is currently on the first Thursday each May.
