The National day of Prayer at Golfcrest was a successful and beautiful event. It was a day of humility, prayer, and healing for our Nation. Scripture reading was found in II Chronicles 7:14, which states, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land”.
The service started at 10am and ended about noon. We had a total of 63 individuals in attendance, from various background and faiths. We prayed for numerous needs such as prayer for our Judicial System, the Military, our elected officials, the President, the Media, and our Educational system, etc.
Prayers were led by our DON, our Dietary Manager, the Chaplain advisory members, which consist of Catholics, Baptist, Jewish, and other Non-denominational individuals. It was an inter-generational, inter-faith, and inter-denomination service, with over twenty children dancing and singing. One of the CNAs also blessed the attendees with a beautiful solo.
The residents, stakeholders, and others from our community were blessed and overjoyed by the uplifted songs and prayers. Refreshments were also served to all by the dietary team.
I am humbled by the love that flowed in our facility that day! God’s word says, “Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell together in Unity (Psalm 133:1). Prayer united us that day and it was truly beautiful.
To God be all the Glory!
