McCrory Descends Upon Greenville for Prayer Time

By Lisa Wilbourne

It’s not every day you get to see government officials praying on the steps of the county court house. Just today.

Governor Pat McCrory, Mayor Allen Thomas, Rochelle Brown for N.C. House Representative Brian Brown, Sheriff Neil Elks and others took the microphone to lead the faithful — mostly Christians — who had gathered downtown at noon in prayer.

In addition to songs and a mayoral proclamation, there were prayers for legislators, judges and courts, churches, law enforcement and military, families, youth and education, business and media, the prayer movement, prisoners and nations.

The prayer rally concluded with a pretty cool horn, a shofar, being blown.
