Communities across East observe National Day of Prayer

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Communities across the east observed the National Day of Prayer on Thursday.

In Greenville, nearly 100 came together at the Third Street Education Center to pray for Pitt County and the city.

The theme of this year’s Day of Prayer is “For Your Sake.”

Organizer Robert Lee said the Day of Prayer is helping kick off another event, “80 Hours of Worship.”

“They are putting up a tent not only today but throughout the weekend,” said Lee. “So at this location, there will be three days of non-stop prayer and worship. We thought, ‘What a good way to start the National Day of Prayer with’ and then continue throughout the weekend. So God is really moving.”

About a hundred people turned out for the ceremony.

In Kinston, the observance also took place at noon in Historic Grainger Baseball Stadium.

The day is celebrated annually on the first Thursday in May.
