|GOV. JUSTICE HOSTS DAY OF PRAYER SERVICE
Gov. Justice joined religious leaders from across West Virginia today to conduct a virtual Statewide Day of Prayer Service.
Leaders from many different religious backgrounds participated in the event to provide all West Virignians, no matter their religious denomination, an opportunity to pray as one people during the state’s ongoing “Stay At Home” order.
“Today is a special day that we have dedicated to a Day of Prayer in West Virginia,” Gov. Justice said during today’s service. “I go to my God multiple times every day and I can tell you He’ll lead us out of this, but today is a really special day for us all to come together.”
Today’s service was held virtually, with religious leaders participating through online video chat technology to ensure that social distancing practices, recommended by health experts across the country to combat the spread of COVID-19, are being followed. The service included several prayers and songs meant to bring hope to West Virginians through worship. The event was broadcast live online and on television stations across the state.
