The 67th Annual National Day of Prayer was celebrated Thursday, May 3, 2018 all over America! Hood County celebrated for the 10th year – and it was an awesome time!
The day started early: doors opened at the Granbury Resort Conference Center on beautiful Lake Granbury at 5:30 a.m. Hundreds of people came to enjoy breakfast with other Christians and praise the God of all creation! From 6:30 to 7:30 a.m. we were inspired by Rev. Charles Wolford of The Turn-Around Agenda speaking on the theme of Unity. We also heard prayers and sang praises for our nation, state, county and communities. So many people, businesses and churches donated money, services and time that the gathering was paid for before we opened the doors. Click here to view a video of the breakfast gathering.
The annual Bible reading on the Square ended at noon May 3th and was followed by on of the noontime prayer services. Thanks to the many people that came to proclaim the living Word of God over our region. The entire Bible was read out loud at the gazebo in one week!
Then the noontime worship and prayer gatherings started at 12:15 in ten locations around Hood County: the gazebo at the Square plus locations in Lipan, Cresson, Tolar, Acton, DeCordova Bend Estates, Mambrino area, Oak Trail Shores (Spanish), Indian Harbor and Lakestone Chapel. This was the second time the Hood County Prayer Task Force had offered a second prayer option to the county. Over 100 people met in those locations to again seek God and His answers for America.
The Hood County Task Force and the Lake Granbury Ministerial Alliance would like to thank everyone that participated in prayer and those that worked so diligently to make it excellent. Over 90 people, churches and businesses contributed to this excellence through giving their time, donating funds, supplies and services and giving generous discounts.

Our 2019 Day of Prayer observances will be on Thursday, May 2, 2018 at the same locations and times. Check back in the Spring of 2019 for more information.
Listen for the voice of the Lord and look for His hand as He moves in America and in Hood County. The effective fervent prayers of the righteous avail much!
Glory to our God, the Lord Jesus Christ!
