Warsaw celebrates National Day of Prayer

| May 2, 2013

007WARSAW – The presence of God was felt Thursday, May 2 at the gazebo in Warsaw as residents and church personnel gathered to celebrate the National Day of Prayer. Seven pastors from area churches prayed for seven specific areas, including the village of Warsaw, the state of Ohio, and the nation. Tim Thomas provided inspirational music.

“The important thing is the Lord in our nation, the Lord in our people, and the Lord in our hearts,” said John Rahter, pastor at Warsaw United Methodist Church.

Rahter prayed for the village of Warsaw and Charles Warren, pastor at Tyndall United Methodist Church, prayed for Coshocton County.

“I feel it’s a great privilege that I live in this county,” said Warren. “It’s so wonderful to know that God created this county for all of us.”

Richard King, pastor at the Nazarene Church, prayed for the State of Ohio, and Philip Hunt, pastor at Central Christian Church, prayed for the federal government.

All members of past and present armed forces were prayed for by Jeremy Roseberry, pastor of Canal Lewisville and Park United Methodist Church, and Sharon Kirch of God’s Eternal Love Fellowship, prayed for our schools.

“There’s nothing more important than our children,” she said. “They may rebel. All children rebel, but they hold on to the seeds instilled in them by their parents.”

John Kirch of God’s Eternal Love Fellowship prayed for the emergency and law forces in the county. Tim Thomas ended the event with a song.

“Each of you has a job today,” said Thomas. “You’re going to run into someone today who doesn’t know Jesus, someone who needs prayer, and I’m going to ask that you become the difference in someone’s life today.”

The Coshocton Ministerial Association is having their National Day of Prayer ceremony tonight at the Court Square at 6 p.m.
