WINFIELD - Local churches are coming together to promote a time of public prayer for the nation.
The event is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 26, beginning at 8:30 a.m. The one-hour public prayer time will be held at the gazebo located adjacent to Winfield City Hall. Ironically, this is the same Saturday which traditionally serves as Mule Day weekend in the city.
The local prayer event is being held in conjunction with a prayer march set for the same day in Washington, D.C. The event in the nation’s capital is being coordinated by renowned evangelist Franklin Graham.
The son of the nation’s most recognizable evangelist, the late Billy Graham, is calling upon Americans to come together in a time of prayer. The nationwide effort is being used to focus on the crises now facing the United States, with issues ranging from the COVID-19 public health crisis to race relation debates which have led to rioting and looting in several American cities.
