Each year some Bladen County citizens gather to observe the National Day of Prayer in Bladen County. This year, several area pastors encouraged others to get out and pray in different communities on May 2 to observe the national prayer day.
Dr. Mack Roberts with Galeed Baptist Church along with other area ministers held a prayer service at the Bladenboro Historical Building located at 818 S Main St, in Bladenboro on Thursday evening at 7 pm.
Rev. Warren Hill invited the public to celebrate the day in the parking lot of Dublin Elementary School located at 7048 Albert St, in Dublin.
In his invitation, Rev. Hill said the goal of the event was to pray together for our country, state, counties, cities, schools, churches and first responders.
Throughout the events Scriptures such as 2 Chronicles 7:14 was quoted to remind people the importance of prayer, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
