'rayer The Perkins Ministerial Alliance invites our com- munity to participate in The National Day of Prayer by seeking God's provi- sions for our city, state, and nation on Thursday, May 6th, 7:00 pm at the Perkins-Tryon Elementary Gym. As the web site for the National Day of Prayer states, "The National Day of Prayer belongs to all Americans. It is a day that transcends differences, bringing together citizens from all backgrounds." In the Constitutional Con- gress of 1787, acrimonious deliberation ensued on how states would be allowed representation in the new government. At the center between the smaller and larger states concerning how much representa- tion each would have in Congress. It was at this point the elder statesman, Benjamin Franklin, stood and moved that "prayers imploring the assistance of Heaven, and its blessing on our deliberations, be held in this Assembly every morn- ing before we proceed to business." What was the outcome of this motion? Division was overcome with the creation of the Senate and House of Rep- resentatives as a balance of power between large 'and smaller states. Plus, prayer has been offered to open both the House and the of the disagreement was Senate since that time. a grand gulf of division Prayer has been a long is May established practice of our nation from the beginning with the Continental Con- gress of 1775 up to today. We have been a country that has turned to God with the aid of prayer during times of growth, tragedies, depressions, wars, and pros- perity in an effort to seek wisdom, aid, and comfort. This historical precedent of prayer was further solidified by being made into law in 1952 as an annual National Day of Prayer. During uncertain times like these, it is imperative that our community gathers together to seek the aid and wisdom of the Ahnighty. The Ministerial Alliance looks forward to praying with our neighbors and friends on this special day.

They encourage anyone interested to visit them and watch what takes place. Juanita handed out brochures to everyone and stated that volunteers and donations are always needed and welcomed.
