To Share in Prayer

May 03, 1996

The annual San Fernando Valley prayer breakfast and brunch Thursday attracted 750 clergy and laity to Los Angeles Baptist High School in North Hills for observances on the National Day of Prayer. The services, organized by the evangelical and interracial Valley Pastors Fellowship, had no political figures on the program in contrast to previous observances. Elizabeth Dole, wife of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Sen. Robert Dole, and GOP presidential candidate Alan Keyes spoke last year. Prayers for the nation, however, were typical in keeping with the themes of the day proclaimed by Congress in 1952 and designated since 1988 as the first Thursday in May.
