Day of Prayer events scheduled

The Southern Ripley Ministerial Association has announced a 2023 National Day of Prayer event in Versailles.
The prayer service will be held Thursday, May 4 at noon on the Ripley County Courthouse lawn. Special guest speaker will be Josh Hershberger and everyone is invited to attend.
The Town of Sunman will also be having a prayer service on Thursday. Pastor Rob Cooley from St. John Lutheran – Hubbells Corner, would like to invite everyone to the service that will begin at 10 a.m. The church is located at 12523 N Dearborn Rd., Sunman.
In observance of the National Day of Prayer, Sovereign Grace Assembly will be hosting a morning prayer at 6:00 a.m. on May 4. This will be at the Tyson Activity Center, 100 N. High Street, Versailles (entrance #3 at the northwest corner of the building). Morning prayer will be offered for family, church, and our government.
The community is invited to attend any of these prayer events or have their own at home. With the nation in turmoil, those from the Christian community are asking for everyone who believes in the power of prayer to unite and be a part of the special prayer day.
The 2023 theme is Pray Fervently in Righteousness and Avail Much. In the Bible, James 5:16…it says, “The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”
The National Day of Prayer was founded in 1952 and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman encouraging Americans to pray on and celebrate this day.
