By WVUA 23 News Reporter Avery Lake
Dozens of people gathered together Thursday at Capitol Park in Tuscaloosa to celebrate the National Day of Prayer.
Those in attendance offered up their prayers for God’s protection over our community alongside the country as a whole.
Educators, police officers, members of the military, pastors and local families joined in on the prayer and worship service.
“We’re having a meeting right here at Capitol Park today,” said event organizer Rob Moore. “We’re having worship time. Then we’ll have a prayer time where we’re going to be praying about a lot of different things. We’re praying for God’s intervention, God’s protection over our nation and over things like military, government, education, families, and businesses.”
Moore said he was excited for hosting the event because it’s the first time it’s happened since the COVID-19 pandemic started in 2020.
