Praying that revival will sweep our nation, nearly 100 people gathered at the Farmers Market at noon Thursday to join with the rest of the county for National Day of Prayer.“We need to learn to pray again,” said John Jones of Sunny Hills Baptist Church, telling those on hand that prayer is the key to the problems the world faces. “How many people call themselves Christians but have never spent 15 minutes in prayer?”Jones said it isn’t about where you go to church, it is that you believe in the one true God.“Nowhere in the Bible does it say we have to worship in the same place,” Jones noted, saying the many denominations have the same goal, that being, winning the lost to Christ.Coy Hathcock of Westwood Church of Christ told those gathered downtown there are three main things Christians need to do in today’s world.“We need to attack our uncertainty with God,” Hathcock declared. “We need to look at his track record of the things he has done.”Hathcock said it is sometimes a good thing to listen to what God has to say to us.“He speaks to us through the tough times,” Hathcock said.
