The annual National Day of Prayer Breakfast was held at Riverview HealthCARE Center this morning and large number of people from the community attended this special event. Chaplain Phillip Ramey gave some opening remarks to begin the program and opened the event with prayer. The audience was then blessed with a special song from one of our faithful volunteers, Bill Donovan.
The Mayor of Prestonsburg, Les Stapleton, was on hand to read and sign a National Day of Prayer proclamation from the city. He was followed by Ben Hale, County Judge Executive, who then presented a county proclamation as well. Senator Johnny Ray Turner, State Representative Larry Brown, and other community leaders and clergy also attended this event. Pastor Richard Greene of the Licking River Baptist Church delivered a short devotion on the importance of prayer, and then prayed a prayer for our nation, community, military, churches, and schools.
After a few closing remarks and announcements from Riverview CEO Missy Allen, Chaplain Ramey then dismissed the program in prayer and asked a blessing on the food. Everyone in attendance enjoyed a delicious breakfast provided by the Riverview team. This was a great day and a wonderful event as the community came together for a moment of prayer.
