The annual National Day of Prayer, scheduled for May 1, will be observed on the courthouse lawn, organizers announced this week.
Created in 1952, the mission of the event is to to mobilize prayer in America and to encourage personal repentance and righteousness in the culture.
Event coordinator Zach Cook said the theme for this year's event is "One Voice United Through Prayer," emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to unite together in humility to pray and place their faith in the unfailing character of their Creator, who is sovereign over all governments, authorities, and men.
"To further highlight the theme, the verse Romans 15:6 has been chosen as the focus Scripture for this year: 'So that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.'"
The National Day of Prayer is the country's largest gathering of prayer.
