First Baptist Church, Mt. Juliet, will participate in the National Day of Prayer in a special way as from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m., Thursday, May 6, prayer stations will be set up in the worship center.
The community is invited to come at any time of the day and pray at each of these stations. Each station will have a specific theme and specific prayer needs for which you can pray. At each station there will be instructions to facilitate your prayer time. You can pray at each of the stations for as long as you like, and it is OK if you are not able to reach every station.
First Baptist will also have a special prayer service in the worship center at noon, today.
“The power of prayer cannot be overstated,” said Melody Harmon, ministry assistant. “This is your opportunity to join with millions around the nation in a very special prayer time.”
