After the call has ended at noon, there will be a public prayer gathering at Noon in Purlee Plaza, just off the square.

This will be a public gathering of local Christians expressing their faith and hearing various speakers and musicians. The event will be broadcast live on WSLM 97.9 FM and WSLM 1220 AM during the hour.

“If you plan on participating in the conference call, plan on dialing in 10 minutes early,” said Ray. “We will open the call at 6a with The Lord’s Supper and we will be in prayer from 6a and noon. When you call in, you can stay with the call for 1 to 5 minutes or the entire time.”

Ray encourages churches and National Day of Prayer teams to participate.
