A Time to Pray

Under partial umbrella cover, Alex McKenney, 11, a sixth grader at Bangor Christian School joined several hundred other worshippers in prayer during the National Day of Prayer event at the Bass Park gazebo in Bangor Thursday afternoon.  This long-time annual observance, ordained by Congress in 1952, was established to allow citizens to "turn to God in prayer and meditation."
