Local Church Hosts Pre-Election Prayer Night

By  | 

As voters split down party lines Tuesday, Greenwood Park Church of Christ tried to bring people together before election day.

During the third annual "United in Prayer for America" event on Monday, leaders of other churches along with over 25 local officials led prayers during the hour-long gathering on election eve.

"We do it the night before the election each year because we feel like it's appropriate and necessary to pray for our country, not to pray for any particular party or candidate but to pray for our country and that God would bless us and that his will would be done," said Phil Kimbel, Elder.

The event ran from 7-8 PM and was open to the public.
