A group of individuals is holding a prayer rally this weekend where anyone in the community can join and pray for the difficulties their children may face in the upcoming school year. The group has mailed letters to churches, the school board, and private schools to try to get the word out to all interested family members and even the students themselves. Delbra Pratt, one of the organizers of the prayer rally said, students these days have a lot to take on and need as much support as possible to keep their spirits lifted as they head into the school year.
Pratt said the response she's heard back from the community has been positive and it seems the turnout is looking good for that morning.
The Prayer Rally will be held August 6th at Taylorville Junior High from 10:00 until noon. For more information, check out their Facebook Page at Christian County Prayer Rally For Our Children and Schools, or call Pratt at 217-273-2156. Pratt appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
