Celebrate National Day of Prayer locally on May 5

With the current unrest in the world, today we need to unite in prayer for our country and leadership. More than ever we need the guiding hand of God to help stabilize our nation and unite us in a common bond. We desperately need God’s blessing upon our nation.

We invite all to come and participate locally at this opportunity on May 5 at noon on the front steps of the Stillwater County courthouse. We keep this observance to 30 minutes since many join us on their lunch hour and each person’s time is precious.
