Day of Prayer set for early August

LaFAYETTE — The 18th Annual Day or Prayer for Chambers County will be held at 7 p.m. ET, on Friday, Aug 2 in LaFayette.

According to LaFayette Assistant City Clerk Diane Perry, the Day of Prayer service will be on the eastside of the courthouse but not on the court house property. She said the day isn’t about any single demoniation but about bringing people together.

“It is all about coming together,” Perry said at the Chambers County Commission meeting Monday night. “It’s about praying for Chambers County, Lanett, Valley, LaFayette — everywhere.”

According to a flyer for the service, everybody is invited to the event to pray for the state, governor, mayors and councils of all towns, the military, school systems and the economy of Chambers County.

“We have to pray for Chambers County,” Perry said. “If you don’t pray for your city, your town, your county, no one else will.”

She said God called for the first prayer of this sort on Sept. 6, 2001 and on Sept. 11, 2001, the entire nation changed when the Twin Towers were attacked in New York City.

Perry attended both the Chambers County Commission meeting and the LaFayette City Council meeting Monday night to spread the message about the event. After the prayer, she said those attending will pray for the students and teachers going back into the classroom in the fall.

“We have to give the students a positive attitude and let them know that prayer changes,” she said.

Perry said there will be school supplies handed out afterward.
