The 71st Annual National Day of Prayer is still set for Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., but due to potential rain the event has been moved to First Baptist Church’s sanctuary at the corner of 3rd Street and JR Miller Boulevard (enter through street-level double doors on 3rd Street).

New this year is a teen prayer night that will take place tonight (May 4). The teen prayer event will be a night focused on prayer, praise and worship. It is designed for middle and high school students/youth pastors. It will take place from 6:30-8 p.m. at Pleasant Valley Community Church.


For the main NDP event on Thursday.

“A Circle of Good News” will be from 11:30-11:50 a.m, when attendees will quietly read aloud their pre-assigned verses from the Bible so that by the end of the 20 minutes the entire Bible will have been read aloud. Attendees can pick up their “start-to-read-here” Scripture verse and instructions beginning at 10:30 a.m.    

Owensboro Health Regional Hospital employees are voluntarily participating in the Bible read during their lunch time.

Organizers said all three public high school districts have approved their students attending this event. Contact your high school for their check-out policy.
