National Day of Prayer
5.5" x 8.5"
ink and watercolor
There has been a lot of controversy this year concerning the National Day of Prayer. Of course, we should have it in this country. No question about that.
This is my little contribution. Remembering Sneed Memorial Methodist Church in Calvert, with the Sunday School Superintendent, Joe Bill Foster, ending Sunday School each Sunday, with the Benediction. The big stained glass window, depicting Jesus, behind him was painted by our artist, Miss May Foster.
Whether you gathered in a big group today, went to a church or community event, or said a private prayer, or painted a window, or a picture, sang a song in a choir or as you drove in your car, were especially kind to someone, watched a service on the computer or tv , I know that you feel better for participating in our National Day of Prayer. And we are all better off for it.
Here, there was a gathering at the Palace Theatre in downtown Bryan. Probably some services in churches around town too.
My yellow is too strong in the scan, again, and I see that I scanned it sort of crooked. But maybe it will stir a memory for you, too.
