The 2013 El Dorado County Day of Prayer Services, which is nondenominational, will be held Thursday, May 2 from 7 to 8:15 a.m. at the Cold Springs Community Church, 2600 Cold Springs Road in Placerville, and is sponsored by the Sierra Law Enforcement Chaplaincy and Kiwanis Club of Placerville.
A free continental breakfast will be served at 6:45 a.m. by the Kiwanis Club of Placerville to allow everyone to get to work. Those needing to leave early to start their day are welcome to do so as the service is casual.
Tim Thompson, Chaplain for Sierra Law Enforcement, feels that the Day of Prayer fills an important need in the community.
“We are sponsoring the El Dorado County and National Day of Prayer as there is a real need for our leaders, local, state and nationally to receive our prayers for guidance and support,” Thompson said.
The National Day of Prayer’s theme is “Pray for America.”
Each year since 1952 the President of the United States proclaims a National Day of Prayer on which the people of the United States may turn to God in prayer and meditation.
El Dorado County first observed the National Day of Prayer in 1963.
