For the 23rd consecutive year, Bowling Green and Wood County have joined in the observance of the National Day of Prayer. This year's event was moved to Trinity United Methodist Church near the Wood County Courthouse due to forecasted bad weather.  PHOTO BLOG
Emma Lashaway, who attends Plain Congregational Church, said "This reminds us all how blessed we are and to pray for all our leaders regularly. We forget that once in a while." 
The Wood County coordinator, Kristel Asmus, introduced the program noting, "We want all the churches to come together in unity to pray for our country."
This year's theme was "One Voice United in Prayer" and Nancy Cupp of Dayspring Church, who sang the National Anthem and another solo, invited everyone to unite their voices in song with "Sweet Hour of Prayer."
State Representative Tim Brown shared a Bible verse which reads, "Now the Lord is a Spirit. And where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty," (2 Corinthians 3:17).
He also thanked all those gathered for their prayers for him and his fellow legislators.
State Senator Randy Gardner shared similar thoughts, noting the importance of having the National Day of Prayer and saying prayer is a "very important part of our lives as public servants."
He shared words from the state constitution reflecting the founders' beliefs in God and also recited the state motto which reads, "With God, all Things Are Possible."
