National Day of Prayer observed Thursday at Pulaski County courthouse
PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (May 6, 2010) — Local elected officials and church leaders continued their tradition Thursday of attending and supporting the annual prayer service on the courthouse square in downtown Waynesville.

“We come out and it’s just open for anyone who wants to be here today and join us in a time of public prayer and we just try to prayer for everyone from our leaders: the president all the way down to our local leaders and state government and city government,” said Jeff Combs, pastor of the St. Robert Church of God. “We pray for God’s guidance in their lives and God’s wisdom in their life … taking advantage of the great freedoms that we have in this country.”

About 40 people attended the service, which is nondenominational and not sponsored by individual local churches.

“It’s just a part of the overall National Day of Prayer, which is very much worldwide at this point,” Combs said. “It’s to demonstrate unity and take advantage of this freedom … I think it’s important that when a day is so designated as the National Day of Prayer I think it’s important that we especially as leaders in the community come out and demonstrate that we are behind that and support that.”
