Grady countians who traditionally come together en masse for the National Day of Prayer will not be doing so this year.
The national observance is tomorrow, May 7, and this year’s theme is “Pray God’s Glory Across the Earth.”
The Grady County Ministerial Association will conduct a virtual service, which will be broadcast live on Facebook and available for viewing later, as well.
The broadcast will originate from Cairo’s First Assembly of God. The program calls for a welcome and opening prayer by host pastor Travis Harrison of First Assembly of God with his wife, Sarah, performing a worship song immediately following.
Then, a number of local pastors will offer prayers for the eight areas of emphasis. Those scheduled to appear include:
• Church- Pastor Christy Bandy, Cairo First Methodist Church
• Government- Pastor Becky Willis, Cairo Presbyterian Church
• Family- Pastor Teddy Williamson, Riders for Christ Cowboy Church
• Education- Meghan Ridenour, Executive Director, First Option Care
• Business- Pastor Johnny Moore, Family Worship Center
• Military- Pastor Kevin Hindsman, Redeeming Life Fellowship
• Media- Pastor Buddy Whatley, Woodland and Bold Springs Methodist Church
• Prayer for COVID-19 Crisis/ Healthcare- Pastor Ron McCaskill, Christ Church of Cairo
Following the prayers, Sarah Harrison will perform another selection and Pastor Harrison will close out the broadcast with a prayer.
Ministerial Association officials say they regret that local residents cannot gather for the National Day of Prayer, but they remain hopeful they will be able to do so in 2021.
