The community is invited to join a prayer meeting -- “a call to the response” -- August 6 from 5-6 p.m. at Pickens High School stadium.
An organizer said this would be a general community prayer for the nation, not connected to the school or students. Pastor Ron Rucker of Cornerstone Church will open the prayer meeting. Other pastors and members of the community will also offer prayers “for the crisis our country is in.”
“The call to response,” follows an initiative of Texas Governor Rick Perry. It is a call for repentance for the United States.
The event originated from a women’s prayer group and is not affiliated with any one church or group.
