Residents from across the area are observing the National Day of Prayer.
Members of the community worshipped together at Erie City Hall representing different communities and congregations. They prayed for the country, the city, and their leaders. The service was the culmination of 24 hours of continuous Bible reading in Perry Square that started Wednesday morning.
Cindy Matta, Director of Pray Erie, says, “I think we have seen a level of unity in Erie that I think we’ve not seen before. And it’s growing. It’s moving.”
Pray Erie hopes to continue that unity when it begins its monthly prayer walk this Saturday from 9-10 in the morning starting at Pfeiffer-Burleigh school.
