Online PR News – 28-April-2019 – McDonough, GA – Child sex trafficking, school shootings, metal detectors and armed officers in our schools, all are commonplace today yet were unheard of just a few decades ago. Our nation is at a tipping point. Something must change to keep us from tottering over the edge of a dark precipice. The event on May 2nd, in conjunction with the National Day of Prayer, is the catalyst of that change.

A "City on Our Knees" is an event coordinated by True Gospel Christian Church (TGCC). This is not for, or about, "a" church, it is an event for THE church. It is a time for unity when such is sorely lacking in our country. People of all races, ethnicities, denominations, and political persuasions are invited to take a stand - on their knees - to shift society back to a culture of honor, respect, and civility.

The event will be held at McDonough Square from 6 pm to 7 pm on Thursday, May 2nd. It will be a time of worship, praise, fellowship, and prayer. "We've received support and commitment from many local churches, businesses, and government leaders," said William Hill, TGCC Outreach Coordinator. "The National Day of Prayer event held in Macon hosts several hundred people, this is our first event in McDonough, but we hope it will grow to that and greater," said Hill.

The National Day of Prayer was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Truman. On that day (the first Thursday in May) organizations throughout the nation plan local events to pray for their city, state, and the nation. Here in Henry County, it will be celebrated on May 2nd in the Square in McDonough, Georgia.
