Sonora, CA — Several churches in the Mother Lode are celebrating National Prayer Day today.
KVML News spoke to Viva Turner who celebrated the day at her Sonora home with her bible study group this morning.
According to the official website, The National Day of Prayer Task Force calls the nation to prayer by creating awareness and urgency for intercession and providing the resources necessary to facilitate prayer growth in America.
Turner says her group prayed for about an hour for a wide variety of things from the body of Christ throughout the world to wisdom and guidance from God for President Bush.
Turner believes that the prayer day is a wonderful opportunity to bring people together to lift their voices in prayer in a nation that is free.
