Communities in Lafayette parish celebrate National Prayer Day
The cities of Scott and Carencro feature local pastors and youth during their celebrations
LAFAYETTE, LA (KADN) — The cities of Scott and Carencro took part in celebrating the National Day of Prayer today with the theme being "Pray for America." Both communities agree that now more than ever, prayer is something our nation needs.
"It brings everyone together, but I think prayer is very important in our lives. Especially at this time, America needs prayers so it's just a very good community effort," says Hazel Myers, chairperson of Scott National Prayer Day Committee.
"Our most important think is we involve the schools. We think it's really important to show the youth of our city how we can pray together for our city, state, and nation," says Stacey Judice, co-coordinator of Carencro National Prayer Day.
Both communities had local pastors speak, served a free lunch, and featured the community's youth in the celebration.
