Statesville Clergy and Faithful Hold Community Day of Prayer for Saturday | Local News
Local religious leaders are scheduled to meet at 9 a.m. on Saturday at Shiloh AME Zion Church to pray for Statesville and surrounding communities.
The church is at 1115 Salisbury Road.
âThere are no denominational barriers. We just prayed and lifted up Jesus, and invited the presence of the Lord over there, and really cry out, and stand aside for our community and for change, âsaid Dr. Tammy Fraley, from Helps Ministries of Deliverance. Inc. and one of the event organizers.
Along with Fraley there will be Supervisor Sandra W. Forney, also from Helps Ministries; Dr Patricia Ganier, from Shiloh AME Zion Church; Pastor Cedric Johnson of the Well Worship Center; Pastor Erskin Summers of the Bethel Kingdom Life Worship Center; and Bishop Wilford and Deborah Walls of Bethlehem Holiness Church to pray for the community. The public is also invited.
Fraley said they will come together to pray over the community and its needs.
âWe pray for our county; we pray for our government representatives in both parties. We pray for churches, pastors, leaders, our children, schools, âFraley said. âWe just pray for whatever the Lord puts on our hearts or how the Holy Spirit is leading us. “
Fraley said social distancing and masking will be practiced due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, that they will pray for the community in this regard as well.
