Bush speaks at National Prayer Day ceremony

Prayer is the greatest gift we can offer to someone. That’s what President Bush told attendees at a National Day of Prayer ceremony in Washington the morning of May 3, 2007.

Bush said since the beginning of time, nations have been called to prayer to acknowledge God and seek his wisdom and guidance. He said prayer has the power to change lives and change the course of history.

People from all over the nation, including citizens from South Central Kentucky, celebrated this 56th annual National Day of Prayer.

About 100 people attended the ceremony at the old courthouse steps in Bowling Green today.

People from the community were asked to pray for the church, their family, the government, the media, education and more.

The May 3, ceremony goes along with a prayer event being held at Living Hope Baptist Church.

“The National Day of Prayer happens to coincide with an event we’re doing anyway of calling people into the church to pray for three days, 36 hours for the church and our ministry,” said Brandon Porter, with Living Hope Baptist Church.
