Today is the National Day of Prayer in Acadiana and there were several opportunities to celebrate the event.
The Lafayette National Day of Prayer event was held at Moncus Park at the Horse Farm. Lafayette Mayor-President Joel Robideaux opened the event followed by several communities and church leaders.
"Nationwide it’s important that we gather together," said Kelly Mouissset, One Minute Ministry director and attendee at the Lafayette event. "Prayer is such a powerful tool that goes underutilized and this is an opportunity to come together as a community with one voice, one thought and just come together before God and reunite our country."
Scott’s National Day of Prayer kicked off from Scott’s Events Center at 11 a.m.
"We have all denominations here and for us to pray to one God that’s meaningful and for us to hug and kiss one another no matter what church we belong to show that friendship and love in the City of Scott is united," Scott Mayor Purvis Morrison.
The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May.
