Across Indiana, The Salvation Army participated in National Day of Prayer ceremonies aimed at lifting our nation and its people in prayer.
In Indianapolis, the 66th Annual National Day of Prayer Observance at the Indiana Statehouse drew a large audience. Among those chosen to lead a prayer was Major Collette Webster, Director of Women’s Ministries for The Salvation Army Indiana Division. Major Collette’s “Prayer for our Families: Fathers, Mothers, Elderly, Youth and Caregivers” reflected the hopes that we share for struggling families in our state.
In New Albany, The Salvation Army hosted the National Day of Prayer ceremony for the city, welcoming community leaders into the Center of Hope. Major Steven Kiger joined Mayor Gahan and others as they prayed for the people of Southern Indiana, our nation’s leaders, and the future of our country,
The Salvation Army of Columbus joined other church leaders in its community to take part in a 24 around-the-clock reading of the Bible leading up to today’s activities. Captain Jodi Sladek and her Salvation Army team read scripture aloud for a three hour shift outside of City Hall.
Thank you to each participant who joined us, whether in person, via Facebook Live video, or simply in spirit. As William Booth , founder of The Salvation Army, once instructed, “Work as if everything depended upon work and pray as if everything depended upon prayer.”
