Fifty or so people took time out from their day on May 5 to observe National Prayer Day at noon at Wilton Library. The first Thursday in May each year is recognized as National Prayer Day, and the annual event here is hosted by Morning Meditations with Sisters in Community, a prayer group that meets weekly at the home of Adrienne Reedy.
Following a proclamation from Gov. Dannel Malloy, read by First Selectman Lynne Vanderslice, Reedy welcomed those assembled. She explained that her group “prays for this community every single week. … We believe in the power of prayer.”
