Community Prayer Meetings

Two community prayer meetings were held. They were very successful. Thank you for joining with many others across the Clarksburg-Bridgeport area in praying for our Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen, and Guards. Many area pastors & churches came together to pray. City officials were on hand to represent their cities.

At the first prayer rally, which took place Saturday, April 12, 2003, at the Harrison County Courthouse, downtown Clarksburg, WV, the final speaker was the late Pastor David Kates, a former mayor of Clarksburg, and a former city councilman. During this rally, prayer was made for the successful locating of, and release of, POWs held hostage by Iraqi forces. The very next day, all seven of the remaining POWs were recovered alive.

At the second prayer rally, which took place Saturday, April 19, 2003, at Meadowbrook Mall in Bridgeport, WV, the final speaker was the Honorable Margaret Bailey, serving on Clarksburg's City Council. During this rally, prayer was made for the successful locating of MIAs. Soon afterwards, the bodies of the MIAs were recovered. They were killed prior to the prayer, but it was an answer to prayer that their bodies were recovered.

Special thanks to all those area businesses and offices whose kindness and concern helped in producing these meetings, including Meadowbrook Mall, Harrison County Courthouse, Reep Graphics, United Sound & Electronics & others (see complete list).
