Hometown Hernando for July 12

Local churches, area ministries and residents of Hernando County gathered at the Hernando County Courthouse steps the evening of June 12 to pray for the county. The night began with worship by Ascend Youth Ministries leaders, Sarah Brosher and Madison Slayton, followed by a time of prayer. Adults, students and children prayed for God’s intervention in Hernando County and throughout the Nature Coast of Florida. A few of the prayer points covered were prayers for the safety for those who serve in military, first responders, and police; God’s guidance for those who serve in government; God’s blessing upon our families, schools and local businesses. Participating churches included Grace World Outreach Church, Vineyard Christian Church, Fellowship Community Church, New Wave Church and Praise Assembly, along with Joseph’s House, SUM Bible College and Immerse the Nations.
