National Day of Prayer 


Taking time as a community to come together to pray for one another is the basis for the Starkville observance of the National Day of Prayer. 


The Starkville observance of the National Day of Prayer will be at noon May 1 at the Starkville Sportsplex. The public is invited to attend for this special time of prayer. Prayer for the eight core areas of national, state and local government, education, churches, families, media, military, health care and business will be an important part of the event. 


Rev. Giles Lindley, pastor of First United Methodist Church of Starkville will be one of eight speakers at this year's event. Lindley will speak on the topic of prayer for the church. 


The national theme for the 2014 National Day of Prayer is "One Voice, United in Prayer," emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to place their faith in the unfailing character of their Creator, who is sovereign over all governments, authorities, and men. To further highlight the theme, Romans 15:6 has been selected as the scripture for this year's event: "So that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ." 


Please join us for this special time to pray for local leaders and core elements of our community, as well as the state and the nation.
