Hardin and LaRue counties will observe National Day of Prayer on Thursday.
Tom and Diana Bissig have coordinated the Hardin County event for the last five years. Tom Bissig said the idea of the observance is to meet at a local courthouse or government building and pray.
“Once a year, the nation needs to come together and pray,” Bissig said.
This year, 20 representatives from different denominations will gather to pray for one hour, and anyone is welcome to join. After the prayer meeting, refreshments will be provided.
