NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER:


On Thursday, May 3, the Milford United Methodist Church invites all area residents to participate in the National Day of Prayer. Anyone who would like prayers said for them or with them is invited to come to the church between 9 am and 3 pm. Pastor Luanna Cook-Scott will be available along with members of the church for impromptu prayer. From 3 pm to 6:30 pm Pastor Cook-Scott will lead Pop-up Prayer in various symbolic locations all around the Borough, praying for groups of people, aspects and issues in our society, for our neighbors, our community, our nation and our world. Follow the church’s Facebook page, facebook.com/MilfordUMC to find locations and times. All are welcome.
“The United Methodist Church welcomes all people as children of God,” said Rev. Luana Cook Scott, pastor at Milford United Methodist Church. “And as children of God we are called into disciplines that draw us closer to God and to one another. Prayer is a powerful personal and communal discipline that strengthens our relationship with God and one another. As we join others across the United States praying for the 2018 theme of unity, we will lift up in prayer the specific needs of our local community and ask for God to lead us into discernment so that we might move from prayer into action”.
At 6:30 pm at the Milford United Methodist Church at 206 East Ann Street there will be free refreshments followed by a lecture on Early Church History by Reverend Lloyd Kenyon at 7 pm.
In addition to these activities, the members of the congregation are praying each waking hour of the day on a variety of subjects with a prayer guide being distributed in advance. To join in praying through the day you can obtain that guide from the church’s Facebook page or by emailing the church at mumc@ptd.net.
WHAT: Community members from Milford will come together with other concerned residents for a prayer on various subjects in recognition of the National Day of Prayer.
WHO: Rev. Luana Cook-Scott, Pastor, Milford United Methodist Church
WHERE: Milford United Methodist Church at 206 East Ann Street in Milford and various locations around the Borough
