Community joins pastors for prayer at courthouse
Thursday, May 7, local pastors celebrated National Day of Prayer.
Gathering around the flagpole in front of the Garza County Courthouse at 8 a.m., prayers were centered around keeping Garza County safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“If there’s ever a time we need prayer,” First Baptist Pastor Keith Garner said. “it’s right now.”
County Judge Lee Norman agrees.
“I whole heartedly support this effort during these trying times,” Norman said. “Our nation has needs. Many of us have been praying over this county for quite some time.”
With social distancing in place, joining community members stood six feet apart, heads bowed as multiple individuals prayed, lifting churches, schools and Garza County.
Those included in leading the community in prayer were not only pastors but also Fire Chief Jimmy Valdez and Curt Greer.
“Lord, we prayer for clear vision and we lay this at your feet,” Greer said kicking off the prayer session.
Both the pastors and city officials thank the community for joining and respecting social distancing.
