Local Day of Prayer activities announced

March 3rd, 2020 by WCBC Radio

The Cumberland Area National Day of Prayer will be celebrating its 25th anniversary on May 6 and 7, 2020.
The National Day of Prayer is observed annually on the first Thursday in May. This day of observance, designated by the United States Congress, asks people “to turn to God in prayer and meditation.” The modern law formalizing the annual National Day of Prayer observance was enacted in 1952 and each year since, the President of the United States has signed a proclamation, encouraging all Americans to pray on this day. The national theme for this year’s event is “Pray God’s Glory Across the Earth”. Based on the bible verse, “For the earth with be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the water covers the sea.”- Habakkuk 2:14
Cumberland Area National Day of Prayer events will feature a Worship & Prayer Rally at Central Assembly Church on Bedford Road in Cumberland on May 6, at 7:00 PM. The Cumberland Area National Day of Prayer Community Choir will perform under the direction of Pastor Kevin Wilson with special guest, Steve Fitzhugh, former NFL player speaking. The non-denominational Rally is free and open to the public.

A breakfast will be held on the National Day of Prayer, Thursday, May 7, at 8:00AM at the Allegany County Fairgrounds multi-purpose building, a new venue for the breakfast this year. To purchase tickets for the breakfast please call 301-697-6777. The special guest speaker at Central Assembly and the Thursday morning breakfast is former Denver Broncos NFL player Steve Fitzhugh. Steve speaks to thousands each year throughout the country and abroad. His expertise transcends age as he can be found in a variety of venues impacting young and old through his gift of communication. A dynamic speaker and creator of the Power Moves Organization, his message is one of hope and redemption. His timeless stories of life in the National Football League serve as the perfect platform to motivate and inspire.
Following the breakfast, a celebration of prayer and musical worship will take place on the Downtown Cumberland Mall from 11am-1pm with the Community Choir performing along with many other groups and organizations from our area.

    That’s quite ironic for trump to sign that proclamation asking people to pray – when he’s gotta know people will be praying for him to finally get the heck out of office!

      > This shows how ignorant you are, the National Day of Prayer has been around a while. Keep politics out of this!
