DAY OF PRAYER - November 3, 2005

National Day of Prayer tradition predates the birth of the United States of America when the Continental Congress issued a proclamation setting aside a day of prayer in 1775. In 1952, Congress established an annual day of prayer. That law was amended, designating the National Day of Prayer as the First Thursday in May.

National Women’s Day of Prayer will be observed in Calhoun County at First Baptist Church, Grantsville, on Friday, Nov. 7. The church will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. for personal prayer. Everyone is welcome. Come as you are and when you can to join in prayer. We have many prayer needs, in our county, state, nation and world. By uniting in prayer as a nation, we can avail ourselves of the guidance that only comes from God.

People everywhere can be a part of the hope and healing of our world.

Calhoun County churches will sponsor Thanksgiving services from Nov. 13-16. The schedule is located in a separate story. Food and money will be collected for the benefit of the Food Pantry, which is available to anyone in need. There are no forms to fill out and privacy is maintained. The Pantry is supported by personal donations which can be given to your local church or by calling Pete Trippett, coordinator, 354-7966. It is maintained for the people of Calhoun County.

This is the month of Thanksgiving. Let us open our hearts in prayer and giving to our fellow citizens.
