The Twin Counties’ God Belongs in My City Commission is holding a prayer walk at 10 a.m. Saturday at the downtown Rocky Mount Train Station.
The event will kick off with a concert at 7 p.m. Friday. Admission is free. The concert will feature HeeSun Lee, Amante Lacey and D-Will from InMyCity Records. Everyone is invited to attend.
The Twin Counties’ chapter of God Belongs in My City began in 2012 and continues its mission by teaming up with various religious and governmental agencies this year to make an impact in the Rocky Mount community through a lifestyle of prayer.
In 2013, more than 2,000 people from all denominations and economic and social backgrounds united under the banner of Christ with one purpose – to lift up the area we call “home” to God for healing, the group said in a news release.
“We are hoping that citizens from the Twin Counties will join us this weekend to walk and pray for our city, our leaders, and other needs within our community,” said Steve Calhoun, Chairman of the Twin Counties commission. “Our hope is to make prayer a lifestyle for all Christians in our area.”
The first God Belongs in My City Prayer Walk was held in 2009 in New York City, where 1,500 young people walked from North and South Manhattan and met at Times Square and Grand Central Station to pray for the eighth-largest city in the world.
Through prayer, their efforts have unified communities nationwide with one common goal for one day – to reach out to God, the commission said.
