Christians urged at National Day of Prayer gathering in Elk River to join Bless Minnesota
More than 250 people from more than a dozen churches came together Thursday night for a National Day of Prayer gathering a Zabee Theater in Elk River High School.
The event capped off a full day of prayer in Elk River that started at 7 a.m. with the Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast and included a time of prayer around the flagpole at noon at the Sherburne County Goverment Center. All three events were part of the 61st observance of the National Day of Prayer, which was recognized in more than 3,500 venues around the country.
“I want to implore you tonight as brothers and sisters in Christ to join Bless Minnesota,” said the Rev. Greg Pagh, the keynote speaker of the event from Christ Church in Otsego. See more in Editor Jim Boyle’s Star News story.
