Residents attend National Day of Prayer service at WV Independence Hall

Community

Americans of all faiths gathered on Thursday to celebrate the National Day of Prayer.

Locally, a service was held at West Virginia Independence Hall in Wheeling. Prayers were said for community members and government officials among others.

7News meteorologist Emily Goodman was there to say a prayer for the media.

“I did pray for the media to be fair and honest and true in what they speak because I feel like we have a platform and we are able to give the people the truth that we speak and I think we do a good job of that here at 7News,” said Goodman. “It was a great honor and privilege to be here today and join our hearts together.”

The National Day of Prayer falls each year on the first Thursday of May.
