Many churches are involved in planning for the event. Lanett First Baptist, Pilgrim Baptist, Mt. Hermon Baptist, First Christian Church of Lanett, Lanett Congregational Christian and Plant City Baptist are involved every year. 

The Day of Prayer is not about denominations. Everyone is allowed to participate regardless of religious affiliation. Chambers County has been hosting a Day of Prayer at the county seat, LaFayette, for over 20 years.
