SALISBURY, Md.- With music provided by the Salisbury Christian School, Salisbury's "National Day of Prayer" breakfast was held at the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center on Thursday.  Organizers of the event say it's something they look forward to every year.

"We get together to honor God for what he's done for us as a nation, and to just have a time of prayer and fellowship together," said co-chair of the event Jack Savage.

Some attendees have been coming to the breakfast for years.

"It's the one event that really brings us together from all the churches in the community, to show that we are united in our faith, and that we are concerned with America and want to pray for one another," said the Rev. Dean Defino.

Some are attending for the first time.

"I think that the power and the impact of it is amazing, and everyone can leave here encouraged about prayer.  We can call gather together and unify and pray about our nation, pray about school, pray about our personal issues, and give thanks to God," said Isaiah Taylor.

Guest speaker Randy Singer, a pastor and a lawyer, brought a message about continuing faith.

"Today in 2016, we look at what is happening in our country, some of the people who pray for this country have given up hope," Singer said. "They no longer have the joy that they need to have.  As dark as things are, my message today is that there is still reason for hope because the gospel is powerful, and the gospel can change lives."

That's the goal of this breakfast. To ensure everyone goes home changed, and can carry out that message of hope in their communities.
