Local churches in Lockport are inviting the public to join in a National Day of Prayer observance at 6:30 p.m. to be held in the Council Chambers at One Locks Plaza.

The purpose is to encourage prayer on behalf of all elected and public officials who determine public policy and make decisions affecting everyone. The National Day of Prayer "represents a Judeo-Christian expression of the national observance, based on an under-standing that this country was birthed in prayer and reverence for the God of the Bible," according to organizers.

The event will include an Honor Guard, the Pledge of Allegiance, singing of the National Anthem and several segments of prayer led by local pastors. Prayer will be focused on the upcoming National Elections, elected leaders and officials in the City, Town and County, First Responders, Military Personnel, Local Businesses and Families in our community. The event will close with the singing of “America the Beautiful.”

The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting everyone to pray for the nation. It was adopted in its present form in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. More recently, members of the U.S. House of Representatives adopted a resolution in 2014, reaffirming the vital role prayer has played in strengthening the fabric of our Nation throughout its more than 200-year history.

Many Lockport City and Town officials, as well as Niagara County officials, have indicated they will be in attendance.
