The City of Knox will once again be hosting the National Day of Prayer Breakfast.
The annual gathering at the Nancy J. Dembowski Community Center will bring churches, organizations, and businesses together on May 7th. The breakfast and national celebration is typically used as a day to reflect on the direction of the United States. This will be the 64th year the National Day of Prayer will be celebrated.
According to information released from Mayor Rick Chamber’s office, the National Day of Prayer was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of Congress. It was signed into law by President Harry S. Truman.
This year’s theme will be “Lord, Hear Our Cry.” The guest speaker for the breakfast will be Chuck Bachelder, who is the Minister of First Christian Church of Knox. He also acts as President of the Ministerial Alliance of Starke County.
The breakfast will begin at 7:00 a.m.
