NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Saturday, Apostolic Church of North Little Rock hosted an event geared towards spiritual renewal.
Planners say today's prayer service is a source of hope since America is fighting a war overseas, local demonstrators protest what is described as social inequality, and crime happens everyday.
"I am the founder of the Arkansas Day of Prayer and decided earlier this year that we needed to come together," said planner Stephanie Ferrara.
Worshippers say there is no secret about their motivation to pray. Pastor Donnie Copeland says planners centered the hand-lifting revival to be, "non-political, non-denominational. This is pretty much for everybody in the community to come together and pray for our nation."
Speakers encourage worshippers to have an active voice in today's society, while pushing their friends and family to do the same.
"If you didn't get to make it today, whatever it is you feel convicted about, begin praying at home," said Ferrara.
