National Day of Prayer

May 6, 2010

On Thursday,May 6th, in the spirit of unity, the City of Memphis observed National Day of Prayer on Civic Plaza.  Over 100 citizens gathered to hear personal stories and prayers from local faith leaders representing the diverse religious community of Memphis.  Participants prayed for elected officials, the military, families and youth, safe and healthy communities, the economy as well as a unified city.  

The air was filled with song from a choir comprised of City Hall employees, volunteer musicians along with a moving solo from a Memphis Police Department officer.  This year’s observance marked the City’s 10th year celebration and recognition by mayoral proclamation.  Mayor A C Wharton recognized the day as an opportunity to unite as a community and recognize prayer as an important way for many Memphians of diverse faiths to express their beliefs.  Mayor Wharton also called upon those gathered to remember the families in Memphis and Shelby County who were impacted by the floods.
