Local National Prayer Event
     Scott Wesley Brown to Lead Worship at National Day of Prayer Event on Staten Island
The National Day of Prayer will be celebrated on Staten Island this coming Thursday, May 3rd at 7:30 P.M. in an event sponsored by the Staten Island Association of Evangelicals.  Gateway Church at 200 Boscombe Avenue in the Richmond Valley section of Staten Island will host this year’s event. Special guest worship leader will Scott Wesley Brown who has been in the forefront of Christian music for over 30 years. Local Pastors from the Staten Island Association of Evangelical will lead those in attendance in prayer for Staten Island, New York City, New York State and our nation. Dr. Dan Mercaldo, the President of SIAE remarked  “If any part of this Land needs healing and revival it is Staten Island. With the least percentage of believers in NYC, a booming epidemic of drug abuse, and many struggling church and ministries, we need to pray together. The National Day of Prayer gives us that unique opportunity.”
     The National Day of Prayer was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. In 1988, the law was unanimously amended by both the House and the Senate and signed into law by President Ronald Reagan on Thursday, May 5, 1988, designating the first Thursday of May as a day of national prayer. Every president since 1952 has signed a National Day of Prayer proclamation.
This May 3rd hundreds of Churches and tens of thousands of Christians will participate in this event. The theme this year is Unity. In that spirit Dr. Mercaldo invited local churches and Christians to participate saying “Please join us this Thursday at 7:30pm for 90 minutes of united prayer and supplication before Almighty God.”
