Chattanooga House Of Prayer, Local Churches And Ministries To Host National Day Of Prayer Event May 6

Monday, April 26, 2021

Each year on the first Thursday in May the National Day of Prayer is held in cities across the country with over three million participants nationwide. Locally, Chattanooga House of Prayer, in partnership with several local churches and ministries, will host A Day of Prayer for Metro Chattanooga on Thursday, May 6 from noon-1 p.m. on the front lawn of the Hamilton County Courthouse, 625 Georgia Ave.

The hour-long event will feature representatives from various denominations, ethnicities and backgrounds.
 
“Last year we saw our country divide further into polarized camps over all sorts of issues: race, politics and the pandemic—to name just a few,” said Adam Whitescarver, executive director of Chattanooga House of Prayer.  “In response to this, churches and ministries from all over Chattanooga gathered to hold the two largest prayer and worship gatherings in our city with 1,500 and 1,000 people in attendance.  Leaders in Chattanooga’s churches still believe we have work to do and much prayer is needed.  Thus we are organizing again to give a public display of both unity and humility, acknowledging our need of God and one another.”

This is based on a 2020 Pew Research poll of about 3,000 American Latinos. Those who want for “Latinx” to become the default say it’s preferable because it’s ... (click for more)
