AUBURN — The 27th annual DeKalb County National Prayer Rally is planned for Thursday, May 3, at the National Military History Center at 6:30 p.m. The event also marks the 67th annual National Day of Prayer.
This year’s theme is Pray for America: Unity, taken from Ephesians 4:3 that reads, “Make every effort to keep the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace.”
The guest speaker will be Andy Foster from the Cupbearer Cafe in Auburn and director of Inspiration Ministries that preaches transformation and new beginnings through faith and devotion.
The nonprofit organization is a place that assists men and women transitioning out of prison and being reintegrated back into society and the work force.
Inspiration Ministries assists people with acquiring licenses, finding jobs, battling addiction, homelessness and needing transportation and mentoring. The ministry also partners with Blue Jacket of Fort Wayne on a career academy to provide training, employment and vocational direction to anyone considered to be a disadvantaged candidate for employment.
Pastor Jonathan Pennington from Cedar Lake Church of Christ in Waterloo will provide special music.
Prayers will be offered by pastors and community leaders. Attendees are asked to bring a nonperishable food item for the community. The event is free.
