We had a very good National Day of Prayer observance on May 3, hosted by First Baptist Church. Eloise Roberts has coordinated this event for many years. Her efforts are appreciated. 2 Chron. 7:14: “If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, pray, seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land”  (NRSV). Speakers at the event included: Tim Mathis, Pastor and Tim Blevins, Music Director, First Baptist Church on the bypass; Dr. Darrick Brisco, Senior Pastor (Devotional), First Baptist Church, Walnut Street; Justin Johnson (Government), Lexington Avenue Baptist Church; Dr. Joseph Pusateri, Pastor (Family), First Christian Church; Rev. Choe Sergent, Pastor (Education), First Baptist Church, Junction City; Rev. Tom Lane, Pastor (Church), Cornerstone Assembly of God; Dr. David Williams (Business), Lexington Avenue Baptist Church, Dennis Weiskircher (Military), Cornerstone Assembly of God.
