Booneville’s annual commemoration of the National Day of Prayer is set to return in its traditional form early next month.

The annual National Day of Prayer is set for Thursday, May 6, as communities across the country come together to mark the event.

Booneville’s celebration is set for noon on Thursday, May 6 in front of Booneville City Hall. The event will be followed by lunch at the fire department.

Local organizer Diane Guin said they’re excited to return the event to a more normal format after last year’s program had to be held online and via the radio due to pandemic-related restrictions.

This year’s National Day of Prayer 2021 theme is “Lord Pour Out Your Love, Life and Liberty.”

In Booneville a group of local ministers will gather on the steps of City Hall to pray for seven centers of influence in the nation – government, military, media, business, education, church and family. The event will also include musical performances.
