Two local women are hosting an Hour of Prayer in Cullman Regional’s parking lot to let people in the community come together to show their support for everyone fighting COVID-19 while still maintaining social distancing.
The event, set to begin on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.
“It’s an hour of praise, worship and prayer,” co-host Karen Campbell said.
She said the event will feature prayer lines and pre-recorded segments from pastors who live in Cullman and surrounding areas to show gratitude to the people who are on the front lines of fighting the disease.
Campbell, who is hosting the event with Denise Hunter, said they first had the idea after seeing a video from a similar event in Georgia. After discussing it, they began planning the Hour of Prayer on Sunday and cleared it with local law enforcement and Cullman Regional.
Campbell said social distancing rules should still be followed for the event, which means everyone who attends should stay in their car, but they will be able to join in on the worship by listening through speakers that will be set up outside or by tuning their radios to 92.1 or 97.9.
Even though attendees will remain in their cars for the Hour of Prayer, Campbell said the event will still allow the people of the area to come together and show appreciation for the work the hospital’s staff is doing and praying for their continued health and wellbeing.
“In the midst of chaos, we can bring forth peace, even it’s only for an hour,” she said.
