National Day of Prayer event to be held at CMH


A National Day of Prayer event will be held at Clinton Memorial Hospital (CMH) Thursday, May 4 at noon.

The gathering will be hosted by CMH and take place around the flagpole in front of the Cancer Center across from the hospital. The service will include several area pastors and/or leaders with focused prayer on one area of our nation’s welfare.

This event is one of hundreds of prayer rallies being held across America on this day. The National Theme is “Pray Fervently in Righteousness and Avail Much” based on James 5:16.
