The 2014 Washington County observance of the National Day of Prayer will be held on the steps of the Washington County Courthouse in Marietta beginning at noon on Thursday, May 1. The prayer event is one hour long and will include prayer, proclamation, and music. Special music will be provided by students from Wood County Christian School and Local trumpet player David Wells. Over the years, there has been great participation from pastors, civil leaders, educators, marketplace place leaders, military leaders, fathers, mothers, and young people. This event welcomes believers from many denominations and independent churches in the MOV that carry a passion to see prayer and the proclamation of the Word strengthened in our communities. Consider bringing a folding lawn chair with you.
