LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Dozens of people from across Greater Lafayette came together today for the National Day of Prayer.


The group met at Riehle Plaza to pray for loved ones, elected officials and teachers. Congress created the day in 1952 and President Harry Truman signed it into law. On Thursday, Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski led the group in a prayer, asking God to watch over our county, state and nation.

Day of Prayer coordinator Angela Meek said the event brings people closer together.

"It's people's heart and passion to see God move in our city. To bring unity. That seems to be one of the biggest passions of everyone right now," Meeks said. "From all different denominations, all different walks of life and all different backgrounds to gather together and, if nothing else, for 50 minutes just be one body and one voice."

This event's been happening in Lafayette for the last 31 years. They've met in Riehle Plaza since 1997.
