The Sebastian County National Day will be held on the lawn of the Sebastian County Courthouse on May 6th, 2021, 12pm-1pm at 35 South 6th Street.
This event will be a time to come together and pray for our community, including our government, churches, families, military, first-responders, businesses, and media. The event will be presided over by Sebastian County Court Judge, David Hudson. Many local pastors and elected officials are scheduled to pray publicly, including Mayor George McGill.
Providing music will be Craig Smith, recording artist and local pastor of Hope Fellowship. Also singing will be the children’s choir at Union Christian Academy. Our city’s fire department color guard will post the colors.
The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman.
The 2021 National Day of Prayer theme prays: “LORD pour out Your LOVE, LIFE, and LIBERTY.” We are praying and proclaiming a promise of God in our theme verse, 2 Corinthians 3:17, “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”
