The 66th Annual National Day of Prayer was celebrated Thursday, May 4, 2017 all over America!  Hood County celebrated for the 9th 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 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 4th.   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 five locations around Hood County:  The gazebo at the Square plus locations in Lipan, Cresson, Tolar and Acton.  It was the first 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 125 people, churches and businesses contributed to this excellence through giving their time, donating funds, supplies and services and giving generous discounts.

Our 2018 Day of Prayer observances will be on Thursday, May 3, 2018 at the same locations and times.  We will also be adding several lunchtime venues.  Check back in the Spring of 2018 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!
