Leaders and citizens join together for National Day of Prayer

Posted: Updated:
Church leaders and citizens gathered in front of the Pitt County Courthouse for the National Day of Prayer.

The service gathered government officials and pastors on the courthouse steps to pray for the nation. The street in front of the courthouse was closed as a local choir and worship leader led the attendees in song.

“It is special to have so many come together on a day like this and share their thoughts,  and their faith and prayers, and also for our community, city and to pray for our nation because it needs it. Greenville needs it, and our community needs it” said Mayor Allen Thomas.

Mayor Thomas was joined by Judge Rusty Duke, Sheriff Neil Elks and Representative Brian Brown in leading the interdenominational gathering in prayer for Pitt County, North Carolina, and the nation.

Pastors Branson Sheets, James Corbett, Greg Kennedy and Raymond Hoggard joined Bishop Rosie O’neal, Dr. Dick Douglas and Perry Ennis in leading the prayer service.

The theme for the National Day of Prayer was ‘One Voice United in Prayer’. Organizers say the gathering partners with www.prayforgreenville.org to help foster a culture of prayer in Greenville.
