Chatham Community Participates in National Day of Prayer

Posted:

Chatham, VA - Thursday is National Day of Prayer, and folks across our area have been participating.

In Chatham, a group led by local ministers met on the courthouse steps. Gatherers were led in prayer and sang Christian hymns.

The Danville minister who organized the group says he began taking part in the Day of Prayer years ago and has been keeping the local effort alive.

"About five years ago, a group of preachers and myself just got together and decided that we wanted to participate, and we've just continued it year after year, " said Pastor Richard Motley.

Another event, called "Pray for America" will be held Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at Halifax County High School, featuring award-winning country singer Linda Davis. Admission is free.
