After having to adjust last year’s event to accommodate for the novel coronavirus pandemic, then in its early stages, a message of healing seemed appropriate as the National Day of Prayer was back to in-person gathering Thursday.

“Even when we don’t know what to pray for, God knows exactly how to answer our prayers,” First Baptist Church Pastor Chad Alexander said as he opened the prayers for the day at the Lake Jackson ceremony. “As we join our hearts today in prayer … may we offer up our prayers with a sincere heart and may we trust the loving Lord to answer our prayers according to his sovereign will in ways we never expected, or even asked for.”
