The 62nd Annual National Day of Prayer will be observed in Hemphill, Sabine County, Texas; the presentation will begin at 12:00 noon and will end at 12:45 P.M. on Thursday, May 2, 2013 on the Sabine County Courthouse lawn. Bring your own folding chair. The event is attended and participated in by Hemphill and surrounding area citizens.
Pastors, students of Hemphill High School, members of local churches, representatives and officials from City Councils, County offices and military are participants in the NDP program and offer prayers, songs, and patriotic music to complete the inspirational ceremony. Special vocalists, The Rach Family, will present original arrangements of favorite Christian songs, which they will sing a cappella (unaccompanied).
The gathering of the people will begin with a concert presented by the Hemphill (Green Hornet) High School Band, directed by Mr. Evan Richardson, followed by the singing of our National Anthem by Miss Lacey Johns, a senior at Hemphill High School.
Come join our community for prayer for our nation and receive a blessing that will increase your faith in God and your fellow-man.
