On Thursday, more than 40 people gathered in front of the McDowell County Courthouse to lift up their prayers for the churches, families, businesses, local officials, law enforcement and the military.

Held on the first Thursday of May, the National Day of Prayer is an annual day of observance, designated by the U.S. Congress, when Americans are asked "to turn to God in prayer and meditation.” The event is usually held at county courthouses, public squares or churches. People all over the nation gather on this day to say prayers for their country, state or local community.
