2015 National Day of Prayer Observed in Franklin

The Macon County Ministerial Association [Facebook Page] hosted the 2015 National Day of Prayer at the town gazebo in downtown Franklin on Thursday. Here is the video and list of pastors who led those gathered in various prayers and songs, with some of the prayers mentioning local elected officials by name. The event ended with several community groups being formed for prayer before one last hymn. 

The theme for the 64th annual National Day of Prayer was Lord, Hear Our Cry, emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to place their faith in the unfailing character of their Creator, who is sovereign over all governments, authorities, and men. 

The Scripture for this year was I Kings 8:28 “Hear the cry and the prayer that your servant is praying in your presence this day.”
