National Day of Prayer set to return to Bowling Green

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – In just a week, one of the biggest annual national events is returning to downtown Bowling Green.

People will gather to pray over each other, the government and the world along with reading scriptures.

The National Day of Prayer will take place at Fountain Square Park on Thursday, May 2nd.

From 11:30 a.m. to noon, attendees will read individual scriptures to their group during the Bible reading portion.

If enough people come, the entire Bible will be read in 20 minutes.

From 12:05 p.m. to 1 p.m, the 2019 National Prayer for America written by Dr. Ronnie Floyd will be read aloud.

Floyd is the President of the National Day of Prayer Task Force.

Roger Ryan, the Area Event Coordinator for National Day of Prayer, says the goal is to have 360 people attend.

Ryan also tells us they will pray for the seven mountains of influence:

Government, media, arts and entertainment, business, education, religion, and family.

All are welcome to attend the gathering on National Day of Prayer.

If Fountain Square Park is unavailable or in the case of inclement weather, the location will move to 929 College St. Fountain Square Ministries across the street.
