WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Dozens of people turned out at Hugh MacRae Park in Wilmington today to take part in the National Day of Prayer.

President Harry Truman officially declared the National Day of Prayer in 1952.

Pastor Tom Hauser of Global River Church led the prayer. He quoted God’s word in saying, “If my people will humble themselves and pray and turn from sin, then I will hear and restore their land.”

“The greatest stimulus package, we Christians believe, the best thing we can do, I don’t think it’s an overstatement, that if we would gather and call unto him, turn away from our stuff, he’s going to hear from heaven,” Hauser said. “He’s done that in the past through wars of generations of forefathers and foremothers who have stood. Today is an extremely important day for our nation.”

The open mic-style event included prayers for local, state and federal leaders, children and God’s protection and guidance.

    Prayer: where you think good thoughts in lieu of actually doing something worthwhile to make yourself feel good.

    Grow up people, there is no skyfairy. Close to 20,000 children die of starvation every day, no amount of prayer ever puts food in their mouths.
