Salisbury Academy observes Day of Prayer

In observance of the 60th Annual National Day of Prayer, Salisbury Academy held a special service for its students and the community. Students, staff, and community members came together to observe this national event.
Students opened the program with the presentation of colors and led the Pledge of Allegiance. City of Salisbury Mayor, Susan W. Kluttz, presented an official proclamation to Salisbury Academy’s head of school, Diane Fisher, recognizing May 5, 2011 as National Day of Prayer
In speaking to the assembly, Mayor Kluttz commended the attendees for their participation in the National Day of Prayer, adding that she prays daily for the community she serves and for the wisdom to meet their needs.
Prayers were offered up by the students for the government, military, our communities, schools, churches and families.
The theme of the day was from Psalm 91:2, “I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge, my God, in whom I trust.”
In addition to prayers, students performed songs, under the direction of Angela Robbins and Sandy Jordan, that reflected the theme, including “Somebody Prayed for Me,” “Step by Step” and “On this Day”
National Day of Prayer has been an annual observance since 1952 when President Harry Truman signed into law a resolution declaring the annual observance.
The day serves as a way to encourage all faiths to come together to pray for the nation.
Each year, Salisbury Academy joins in this nationwide observance.
