Prayer gathering draws Christian community together
Nearly 300 members of the Christian community from throughout Carroll County gathered recently at the Canal Center in Delphi for a time of worship and prayer. No one wore denominational labels; unity around the purpose of Christ reigned.
Representing 20 churches, the Christian community gathered for one purpose - to pray for the citizens of Carroll County. Fourteen area pastors joined in as well, with several exhorting the people towards the following six areas of prayer: repentance, our nation, the Carroll County community, our schools, pastors, and for revival.
Among the multi-denominational team of pastors who led this event, there was a common theme: “We have strayed from God and His plan for our lives. Our families, our schools and our communities are suffering the effects of a lifestyle that has separated us from the God who created us, who loves us and who longs for us to ‘come home’ to a relationship with Him.” Prayers of repentance were offered.
At the conclusion of the prayer gathering, there was a common consensus that brought hope and excitement to those who attended. A follow-up gathering is tentatively scheduled for Jan. 8.
